Children’s centres give help and advice on child and family health and parenting and organise a programme of activities that are free to attend. Sometimes having a small child can feel isolating – attending group activities can support you both.

Your child can start learning how to make friends, can develop more concentration skills, have more toys to play with and enjoy new skills and activities that can be repeated at home. As a parent, groups can give you advice on how to support your child and reduce feelings of isolation.

Activities in Children’s Centres include: Baby Group – A physical and sensory play session, with ‘baby babble’ activities and a chance to chat with other parents and families with babies, Little Learners – Sessions for children age, 1 – 5 years old to support your child to be an active and engaged learner, Baby Babble – gives parents lots of information about how speech and language skills, Wrigglers & Gigglers – for parents aged 25 and under – come along to play, chat, meet other parents and have days out, Move and Play – at Active Tameside venues – lots of fun ideas and information about crawling, cruising and pulling to stand, sensory play experiences and information on physical development.
