What is a Children's Centre?
Your Children’s Centre is a fantastic community resource that provides a range of services to support you and your family. As a team we strive to improve the quality of life for every child and their parents / carers by offering advice and support with issues such as early education, childcare, health and family advice.
Our team work closely with the local community ; You will find us at our regular Stay & Plays, within baby clinics, breastfeeding groups, and in many other areas. We work hard to make sure we can provide a range of practical services to suit the growing and ever changing needs of all our families. We work in partnership with Doddington Green Children's Centre, based in Bartley Green and between us deliver services across the Senneleys Locality, which covers Weoley Castle, Bartley Green and parts of Northfield.
We want to hear from fathers, mothers, grandparents, and all carer's about what is needed and there are many ways for you to get your voice heard. We have a Parent's Forum - if you would like to get involved, or you simply have an idea for a group or service, please contact Judith on 0121 428 4803
Our team are friendly and all our sites have a welcoming atmosphere. Any enquiries are dealt with discreetly and with integrity; remember we're here to help you!
