Packington Children’s Centre in St Paul’s Road, Canonbury, was rated ‘‘outstanding’’ in every area by Ofsted inspectors and has recently relocated its family and community services to a new outreach site in Packington Square, Islington.

It held the fun day on August 24 to mark both achievements, with activities including cooking, face painting, storytelling and a teddy tombola.

Islington’s executive member for children and young people, Cllr Richard Watts, said: “Providing excellent care and education from birth – like Packington Children’s Centre does – is essential in helping children in Islington to get the best start in life.

“Congratulations to all the staff who are offering a high quality range of services for local families.” Head of Packington Children’s Centre, Ana Sevilla, said: “I am very proud of the staff team. They are passionate and committed to the work of the centre and this clearly shows in all the work that they do.”
