Sure Start Children's Centres in Merton

What is a children's centre?

Children’s centres provide support for children aged 0 to 5 and their families, aiming to ensure that every child has the best possible start in life. They work to make sure all children are well prepared for school, healthy and happy regardless of background or family circumstances. They also offer support to parents.

A children’s centre offers a range of services for families from pregnancy through to when children start school. Centres are somewhere children can make friends and play and parents can get advice and support on their child’s health, family matters, help in seeking work and much more.
