"Our Children's centres play an essential role in giving children and families the early support they need.  We are open to your whole community on a regular basis.  We work in partnership with other agencies such as health visitors, midwives and local schools.

To help under-fives get ready for school our services include: child and familty health services; parenting programmes and antenatal support; early year's eduction services, such as 'stay and play' sessions; speech and language support and family learning.

In addition we offer support for parents with adult learning and employment support.  This may include language, literacy and numeracy support, family learning, access to apprenticeships and volunteering opportunities as steps toward employment and links to Jobcentre Plus.  This is supported by good quality, inclusive childcare."
