  • health services

  • family support

  • employment advice

  • family learning

  • parents' forums

Get involved in a Children's Centre

Each Children’s Centre area has an advisory forum. This is a meeting where local providers and parents can meet to look at the needs of the area and identify how the centre can provide the services needed.

We’d really like as many parents as possible to be involved in these meetings. If you are interested and would like to find out more, please contact your local centre.


Free for parents

Baby days are free activities for families and babies to do together.

All 3 and 4 year olds can get 15 hours of free early learning and play a week during term time (from the beginning of the term after their third birthday).

Free parenting courses, learn how:

  • children learn through play

  • to praise and reward

  • to set effective limits

  • to handle bad behaviour
