What is a Sure Start children’s centre?

Sure Start children’s centres are there to ensure all children get the best possible start in life. They’re a focal point in every community where families with children under five can access all the services and information they need.

Sure Start children’s centres:

  • offer families with children under five a friendly place to go and get information and support on health, parenting, work and childcare.
  • give help and advice on child and family health, parenting, money, training and employment
  • provide learning together through play sessions for mums, dads, carers and their children, and there are lots of opportunities for families to develop new skills
  • offer outreach and home visiting, and services for children and parents who need it through the 'early help' process.
  • provide early learning opportunities for pre-school children

What does Sure Start do?
Sure Start promotes the physical, intellectual and social development of babies and young children so they can flourish at home and at school. They do this by offering support to families and co-ordinating all services for the under-fives.
