Children’s centres in Warrington provide services for young children (0-5, and up to 10) and their families.  We offer a variety of play and development opportunities, childcare, health advice and guidance, family support and parenting advice.

Services are regularly reviewed and developed in each area to meet the needs of local families. Children’s centre services may include:

  • Crèches to support adult education and respite for family support
  • Adult education courses to gain qualifications and skills
  • Ante natal and post-natal care, including midwifery sessions (Parentcraft, rolling programme), health visitor advice, baby massage
  • Advice from a range of professionals such as Citizen’s Advice Bureau (CAB), Health Visitors, Family Support Workers, Parent Partnership
  • Volunteering opportunities
  • Stay and Play sessions for parents/carers and their children.

The core purpose of children’s centres is to improve outcomes for young children and their families and reduce inequalities between families in greatest need and their peers in:

  • child development and school readiness
  • parenting aspirations and parenting skills
  • child and family health and life chances.

Participation in the service is through a registration process operated directly by centres and promoted by stakeholders. Families are encouraged to register and access services at their most local centre, as each centre is designed to meet the needs of those living in its immediate community and is measured by results.

Details of each children’s centre and the latest timetables are listed below. Timetables are subject to change so we strongly advise contacting your nearest centre before attending.
