About us

Children's Centres are an exciting new initiative as the next stage in the ongoing development of Sure Start Programmes. View http://www.surestart.gov.uk  

IT WORKS

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 Area Site link top right of the page.

Our Centre is developing across a designated catchment area. To find out if you live within this area use the Quick Link at the top of the page.
