Enfield Children’s Centres
A Children’s Centre provides opportunities for families with children under 5, to learn, develop and have fun. It is a place for families to attend free courses, workshops and drop in sessions. The Children’s Centre brings together a wide range of services and support for families with young children as part of Enfield’s Early Help Family Hub.
We want children and families to thrive and be resilient. Our aim is that all children and young people in Enfield live in families where they are safe, confident and happy and have the opportunity to achieve their full potential and strengthen their community.
What is the offer?
Enfield’s Children’s Centre offers a universal programme, focusing on play and communication, which is delivered through stay and play sessions. The sites also act as a focal point for the Terrific Twos offer. In addition to this and other universal health sessions, such as Health Visiting and Midwifery, the Children’s Centre offers access to a range of more targeted services at sites across the borough.
• Speech, Language and Communication programmes
• Family Support Workers, including workers trained to provide support in situations where there may be domestic abuse
