The childcare scheme received an overall grade of "good in all areas". Safeguarding was effective with to identify children who may be at risk of harm or abuse, Ofsted reports.
Cllr Danny Hassell, who is responsible for children's services, said: "We are reviewing Ofsted's recommendations for our October holiday scheme when we welcome more children and families."
