In response to government guidance on social distancing, activities within Ealing Children’s Centres have been adapted to be delivered virtually via the group chat app Zoom, which can be downloaded onto a phone or pc, free of charge.

You will be asked to accept our online code of conduct before accessing any of the activities. Once this is done you will be sent a Zoom link to log into the activity of your choice. Click here to go to the timetable(s) to see what is on offer.  

Our Early childhood health services are still operating including some face to face appointments planned in advance. Early Start  health visiting and school nursing services have a 7 day week duty phone line offering advice   

You can now call the Health Visiting advice line for confidential telephone health advice. 

Tel: 020 8102 5888 or email for confidential telephone health advice.

Phones open 9am-5pm, 7 days a week, Monday to Sunday (including bank holidays)

If you are currently registered with our children’s centres, you may have received a keeping in touch call from one of our team or an email.   We will continue to stay in touch with you to keep you updated on how our services are operating and to offer ideas and support during the closure.   If you would like a keeping in touch call you can contact our Family Information Service on 0208825 5588 who will put you in contact with a children’s centre in your area.
