Children's Centre Services

A young girl Our Children's Centres have a range of services for families with children aged 0-5 years old who live in Nottinghamshire. Some of these are at our purpose built centres, but many take place in community venues, parks and in the home.

Our staff have expertise in family support, developing parenting skills, promoting health and wellbeing, early years development, community development, communication and language and supporting adults back to work. Children's Centres work with partner agencies to ensure we support families in whatever area they need.

Each Children's Centre group has its own programme of weekly activities, home visiting schemes and other services which vary according to the needs of their local area.
