Children's Centre Services - Bassetlaw

A baby on a play mat

Children’s Centres can offer one to one or group support with:

  • the emotional health of you or your child
  • playing with your child
  • children’s behaviour
  • domestic abuse
  • children’s development, including listening and communication
  • feeding your child
  • increasing your confidence and help to get a job
  • preparing for a baby

We can give you information about other services, and our groups are a great place to meet other parents and carers with young children. There are also lots of volunteering opportunities - ask at your local Children's Centre or use the contact details below to find out more.



These groups are open to everyone. There is more support available, so please contact your local Children’s Centre if you need some extra help.
