Welcome to Manton Children’s Centre
Our priority is to keep everyone safe and offer support to families, over the phone, online, or in person where needed.
- Many of our Children’s Centres are open, on an appointment only basis, and our teams are still working with families who need support.
- If you come to a Centre, please wear a face covering, wash your hands, sign in, and keep to social distancing rules. If you feel unwell, please do not come.
- 1:1 family support, breastfeeding support, support with new babies, Forest Schools and PHEW wellbeing sessions, baby massage and sleep clinics are running.
- Healthy Start Vitamins are available to collect and the FOOD Clubs are open, all by appointment only.
- Baby Self Weigh is available by appointment.
- BABES Groups and lots of other activities, including play and early learning activities are available online.
- From 17 May BABES Groups, Weaning Groups and some parenting courses will start to be available face to face.
- From 21 June the Children’s Centre Service will be restarting Under Ones sessions and Stay and Play groups at our main sites, with enhanced cleaning in place for the buildings, toys and equipment. Numbers attending groups will be limited, so places will need to be pre-booked 2 days before the session.
