Children’s Centre Service

Offering a range of services for parents to be and families with children

Nottinghamshire County Council’s Children’s Centre Service provides a range of services for parents to be and families with children under five years old who live in Nottinghamshire, helping them get the best start in life. Some of these are at the council’s purpose-built centres, but many take place in community venues, parks, in family homes and online.

Staff have expertise in family support, developing parenting skills, promoting health and wellbeing, early years development, speech, language and communication, working with volunteers, and supporting parents to get back to work.

The Children’s Centre Service works with partner agencies such as the Healthy Families Team, Midwifery and early years settings to ensure they support families in whatever area they need.
Each Children’s Centre Service team has its own timetable of weekly activities, support programmes, family and home visit appointments, which vary according to the needs of the local area.
