Our children's centres are developed in line with the needs of the local community so no one centre is the same. Children's centres work with partners to offer a range of services to meet your child's needs all in one place.

There is a core set of services they aim to provide:

  • child and family health services including antenatal, postnatal, breastfeeding and baby weighing sessions (drop-in)
  • advice on parenting and parenting programmes
  • information and advice to parents on childcare, early years provision and 2-year-old funded places
  • early education and school readiness, early communication support e.g. speech and language drop-ins
  • outreach and family support services including home visits
  • a variety of drop-in sessions
