Children's Centres provide information and support for children aged birth to five years and their families. The Centres are intended to be the first local port of call when a mother, father or carer needs help or advice; whether that is in relation to parenting, their child's well being, learning and development, or simply to find out about activities.
Examples of additional services available from Children's Centres include:
- Information, advice and support for parents/ carers
- Early years provision (such as pre-school childcare and nurseries)
- Family health services
- Antenatal and pre-natal classes
- Encouragement and support for parents thinking about training or finding a new job
Children's Centres are found at various venues. You can find details of your nearest centre by searching for "Children's Centres" on this website and adding your postcode.
