Children's Centres

Children's Centre services in Northamptonshire offer a range of support to families of children from birth to 5 years old, when your child joins reception class at primary school. They are available to everyone.

Please visit your local Children's Centre to register for services which include:

  • Information and advice: During opening hours, libraries can give information about a wide range of services, including childcare and help with looking for a job, or refer you to support if needed.
  • Activities: Our activities include children's stories, songs and rhymes groups, as well as welcome events for new parents. Some of these activities will run at weekends, making it easier for working parents to attend with their children. Details can be found on our events calendar.

Extra help at Children's Centres

Get more support including parenting courses, family learning groups, early learning activities and one-to-one family support by speaking to your health visitor, midwife, family support worker or social worker.

Health services, such as ante-natal and post-natal support from midwives and health visitor scans can be accessed in Children's Centres where needed via their Health Centre or the health professional working with them.
