Welcome to Bournemouth Children's Centres

Providing a warm welcome and a wealth of services and support for local families with children under five years old.

What is a children's centre?

Children's centres are for all families with children under five years old. They provide a range of services, depending on local need and parental choice. The services offered will not be the same everywhere, because needs and communities vary greatly.

By working together with a variety of organisations, children's centres provide:

  • Information, advice and support to parents and carers
  • Access to quality early years education and childcare
  • Health services
  • Family support
  • Employment advice
  • Family learning opportunities
  • Parent forums

We look forward to welcoming you.

Speech and Language Therapy Drop-In 

If you have any concerns about your child's speech, language or communication development then why not pop along to see a Speech and Language Therapist during one of our friendly play and learn groups at a local children's centre.

Your child can play and learn whilst you get some free advice and support. 

If you have any queries about these sessions, please contact your local centre.
