- Q. What is
a Sure Start Children's Centre?
A. Children’s centres can offer information, advice and activities
to support families with children aged 0 to 5. This support
can help to develop children’s and parent’s/carer’s overall health
and happiness. It means families will get the help and support they
need close to their home. (Top of Page)
- Q. Who can
use a Children's Centre?
A. Children’s centres are open to all families with children under
five. Parents/carers and children are welcome to use any children’s
centre in Worcestershire. We want parents and carers to be able to
have the support they need to get involved in their children’s
learning and development, helping them to reach their full
potential. This means providing the support they need, where they
need it. (Top of Page)
What happens at a Children's Centre?
A. Not every children’s centre will be the same but they will all
aim to provide activities locally, which could include:
Family support on issues such as feeding,
sleeping and behaviour management
Baby and toddler activities
High quality childcare and nursery education
Stay and Play sessions
Healthy eating advice
Access to employment and training information
And much more…
