Our Vision

Location: Ashington, Northumberland

 

Central Children’s Centre’s are there to ensure all children get the best possible start in life. We are a focal point in our community where families with children from birth to 19 years old can access all the services and information they need.

Children’s Centre’s:

  • offer family's a friendly place to go and get information and support on health, parenting, work and childcare.
  • give help and advice on child and family health, parenting, money, training and employment
  • provide learning together through play sessions for children under 5 years with mums, dads, carers and their children, and there are lots of opportunities for families to develop new skills
  • offer outreach and home visiting, and services for children and parents who need it through the 'early help' process for 0-19 years of age.
  • provide early learning opportunities for pre-school children
