Centres designed to be safe, friendly and supportive
Our children’s centres provide advice and support for parents and carers. Our services are available to you from pregnancy right through to when your child goes into reception class at primary school.
We offer a wide range of services to meet you and your child’s needs, all in one place.
Your child can make friends and learn as they play. You can get professional advice on health and family matters, learn about training and job opportunities or just socialise with other people.
Monday to Friday between 9 am and 5 pm
How much does it cost?
The children’s centres are open to all children and parents and almost all of the services are free, for example access to midwives and health visitors.
Created for you
Our children’s centres are developed in line with the needs of the local community so no one of our children’s centre is the same. However, we offer a core set of services:
- Child and family health services, ranging from health visitors to breastfeeding support
- High quality childcare and early learning
- Advice on parenting and access to specialist services for families like speech therapy, healthy eating advice or help with managing money
- Help for you to find work or training opportunities, using links to local Jobcentre Plus offices and training providers
