What are Sure Start children's centres?
SureStart children's centres have been developed to improve health, learning and other outcomes for all pre-school children - and particularly for babies, younger children and parents who need additional help and support.
There are eight in North West Leicestershire - in Ashby, Coalville, Ibstock, Measham, Moira, Castle Donington, Thringstone, and Warren Hills. Find your nearest Sure Start centre on the county council's website.
How can children's centres help you?
Children's centres will bring a range of different services into the community, giving parents easier access to information and support. By visiting a children's centre, you will be able to find out more about:
- Health services
- Voluntary organisations
- District councils' services
- Family outreach workers
- Job Centre Plus services
- Early reading and library services
- Early Learning services
- The Family Information Service.
Who can use children's centres?
All Leicestershire families who have a child aged 0 to 5 years old are able to access support and advice from Sure Start Children’s Centres - some services will be targeted and restricted to families with additional needs.
What's on, where and when?
From activity sessions and baby massage to health checks and ante-natal advice, there's lots to get involved with across the district.
