What is a Children's Centre?

A Children's Centre brings together a wide range of service for children from birth - five years. By bringing together a range of service for children and families, from early education and childcare to health and family support, the Centres will make it easier for parents to access service for their children and themselves and help more families in the critical early years of their children's lives.

The Children Centre Strategic Management Framework sets out the principles and visions for the initiative in Liverpool.

Examples of service provided by a Children's Centre include:

  • Childcare for children from birth - 5 years from 8am-6pm, 50 weeks of the year to support working parents and others.
  • Early education led by a teacher for children aged 3 and 4 years.
  • Child and family health services e.g. ante natal and post natal support.
  • Family support e.g. advice and support with parenting skills, dads clubs, learning courses etc.
  • Links with Jobcentre Plus e.g. support in accessing training and employment.
  • Liverpool Children's Information Service e.g. details of play schemes for older children.
  • Services for children with special educational needs (SEN) and disabilities*

*All Children's Centres are fully inclusive settings with support for children with special educational needs and disabilities and are committed to promoting equality of opportunity for all children.
