About Us
Children's Centres are an exciting new initiative as the next stage in the ongoing development of Sure Start Programmes.

The Children’s Centre programme is based on the concept that providing integrated education with childcare, family support and health services are key factors in achieving good outcomes for children and parents.

Many more new Centres are being planned by the local authority. To view information about all current Children's Centres in the area select the Other Centres link top right of the page.

We offer the following services for children under five and their families:

Education and Childcare

  • Lots of family fun and learning opportunities such as stay and play sessions, music and song, story times, baby clubs and special events
  • Childminder services attached to the centre
