Childrens Centre Services

CHILDRENS CENTRES (PREVIOUSLY KNOWN AS SURESTART)

 

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 purpose built centres, but many take place in community venues, parks and in the home. 

 

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 they 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. The service is paid for by Nottinghamshire County Council.


Any parent to be or with a child under 5 can attend their local Children’s Centre’s:

  • Breastfeeding support group
  • Under ones' group
  • Stay and play group for under 5s

These groups are led by volunteers and supported by Children’s Centre staff.

 

Children’s Centres can also 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

 

They can give you information about other services, and groups are a great place to meet other parents and carers with young children.
