Services during national lockdown

Our priority is to keep everyone safe and offer support to families, over the phone, online, or in person where needed.

  • Many of our Children’s Centres are open, on an appointment only basis, and our teams are still working.
  • 1:1 family support, breastfeeding support, support with new babies, the Freedom Programme, Forest Schools and PHEW wellbeing sessions are still running.
  • Healthy Start Vitamins are available to collect and the FOOD Clubs are open, all by appointment only.
  • If you come to a Centre, please wear a face covering, wash your hands, sign in and keep to social distancing rules. If you feel unwell, please do not come.
  • Baby Self Weigh has been paused during the lockdown. If you have concerns please contact the Healthy Family Team.
  • BABES Groups and lots of other activities, including play and early learning activities are available online.

If you are not sure whether we can help, please phone us.

The Children’s Centre Service works to ensure young children get the best start in life and that their families are supported to help them achieve this. Our 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. Some of these are at our purpose-built centres, but many take place in community venues, parks, or in the home.

Our staff have expertise in family support, developing parenting skills, promoting health and wellbeing, early years development, communication and language, working with volunteers, and supporting parents to get back to work. The Children's Centre Service works with partner agencies to ensure we 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.
