Our Vision

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 family health services; parenting programmes and antenatal support; early year’s education 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.

Our Vision

Based In Devon

At Grow, we care about parents and their growing family and know that parents are the most important part of their baby’s life. Our Grow classes can help to grow and nurture parent and baby or toddler’s well-being and the precious relationship between them in calm and relaxed environment. At Grow, our commitment to parents is:

· helping them to grow together from bump to baby and into toddlerhood and beyond

· supporting parent and baby to discover the world around you

· giving parents an insight into their baby or toddlers development, helping them to reach their milestones

· developing a baby or toddler’s interests, letting them discover the fascinating world around them where wonder leads to curious, imaginative babies and toddlers and happy confident parents

· helping parents to feel more confident as a new parent, their child is a unique individual who doesn’t come with a manual and we know that at times being a parent isn’t easy

· helping parents to recognise and understand their baby’s unique cues so they can give him/her what he/she needs

We care about parents and their family and want to make sure that their child gets the best start in life possible. We are here to provide a range of high quality classes designed to support the positive mental health and well-being during first few months and years of a child's life and their parent/s.
