Osfted OUTSTANDING again…We are very proud to have been graded Outstanding (in all inspection categories) on the previous FOUR inspections, these were in 2007, 2009, 2016 and 2020. Our latest inspection took place on Thursday 6th February 2020. Quadruple inspections ‘Outstanding’ grades takes an immense effort, on our part, and we are so pleased the Ofsted Inspectors have recognised the lengths we go to for our children and families.
Why are we called Jadela Juniors?The name Jadela was made up by Dave in 1991 as an acronym of the first letters of our family members James, Ann, Dave, Elizabeth & Laura-Ann. At that time we named our new home, here at 9 Peak Lane, Jadela House.With us both electing to work together in 2008, as childminders, we decided to call ourselves Jadela Juniors.Whilst we remain individually registered, we decided to use the name Jadela Juniors to describe our home childcare.The name Jadela is pronounced 'Jay Dell Ah' not 'Jade Lah'
