December 2021 update
Ealing Children’s Centres are open and continue to run activities and groups for children and families age 0 -5 yrs old. To support current government guidance and for your safety we are limiting the number of places in each session based on the size of the venue. We are offering a range of services that are open to everyone such as Stay and Play, Music and Movement Groups and baby groups, including baby massage. Our targeted services, such as Speech and Language, Fun and Learn and Talk and Play sessions are via invitation only.
To accommodate as many families as possible we have made some changes which could include.
- Limiting the number of sessions that individual households can attend at a centre each week
- Adjusting the length and frequency of sessions to enable more families to access services
- Some centres may also be implementing booking system
Please contact your local Children’s Centre for more information on what is on offer in your area. To view the latest version of our Children's Centre newsletter please click here (external link)
