Bishops House Children’s Centre
Children’s centres provide advice and support for parents and carers. Their services are available to you from pregnancy right through to when your child goes into reception class at primary school.
Children’s centres are developed in line with the needs of the local community so no one children’s centre is the same. However, there is a core set of services they must provide:
• Child and family health services, ranging from health visitors to breastfeeding support
• Most centres offer high quality childcare and early learning – those that don’t can help advise on local childcare options
• Advice on parenting, local childcare options and access to specialist services for families like speech therapy, healthy eating advice or help with managing money
• Help for you to find work or training opportunities, using links to local Jobcentre Plus offices and training providers
