Our children's centres offer services for parents and carers from pregnancy through to the end of their child's reception year at school.
We provide a range of drop-ins and bookable programmes supporting your child's learning and development, including baby massage for first-time parents, speech and language and parenting programmes and support for families with children with Special Educational Needs (SEN).
We also work closely with our midwifery and health visiting partners. Antenatal and postnatal clinics, development checks and weaning support are delivered though the centres, along with drop-in child health clinics.
