Family Support and Parental Outreach
We aim to provide high quality parenting and family support services with appropriate outreach facilities, to ensure all parents have access to the support they need to get involved in their children’s learning and development and give them the best possible start in life.
Services at the Children's Centre
We offer a targeted 11 & 5 week course, The Parenting Puzzle Nurturing Programme that encourages and supports parens/carers to enjoy bringing up children of all ages and to get the best out of family life. It offers positive, practical ways of guiding children so they learn to handle both their feelings and their behaviour. The sessions are informal, fun and a great confidence booster. There is a creche available with limited spaces, please contact us for further details.
There is an opportunity to receive a part Open College Network (OCN) accreditation, level 1 or 3 within the 11 week course with the children’ s centre.
