Welcome to Pokesdown and Southbourne Children's Centre
The centre is managed by YMCA Bournemouth on behalf of BCP Council.
At Pokesdown and Southbourne Children's Centre we offer a range of activities and services for local families. We work in partnership with other agencies to meet the needs of families living locally. You can find us on Stourvale Road in Southbourne.
We are a busy centre with a range of activities open to families with children from birth to five years. Our friendly, experienced team is on-hand to deal with any issues, large or small. We can provide information, help and advice for parents and carers on a range of subjects, including family learning, childcare, housing issues and special needs support services.
We hold regular parent forums so that parents can have a say in our current and future activities. If you're a parent of a child under the age of five and would like to participate in a forum, or have any ideas about what you would like to see happening in the centre, please contact us.
Feel free to drop in to the centre or simply contact us directly to talk about our sessions. Alternatively a local professional such as your health visitor can advise or refer you.
Please complete our parent satisfaction survey to let us know what you think of our services and how we may improve these in the future.
