What information can I expect to find in the Children's Centre Section?
This section of the directory offers parents and carers information about Children's Centres in the area.
The main purpose of a Children's Centre is to provide support for parents, carers and their under 5's so that all children can be happy, healthy and achieve great things in life.
Some Children's Centres have nurseries or pre-schools running alongside; many offer drop-in facilities, Stay and Play sessions, breastfeeding support groups, Family Learning programmes, Dad's Groups, Health Visitor Clinics, Jobcentre Plus advice about job opportunities and training, parenting groups, access to information from other services such as ask, CAB and Home-Start along with other groups and services which are helpful to local families.
Many Children's Centres are in new, purpose built buildings; others have their base in existing accommodation. However all offer a warm welcome, information and support and the chance to find out what is going on locally.
All Children's Centres have a manager or centre co-ordinator and most have outreach workers who can visit families in their own home or take activities into other community venues.
