Come along and enjoy Poole’s Children’s Centres

Parents of under-fives looking for new places to meet people should look no further than Poole's Children's Centres.

Poole’s Children’s Centres offer a warm welcome and a wealth of fun activities, services and advice that support families from conception until their children are five- years old, all of which are free of charge. 

You can join in with play sessions, rhyme time, use the toy library, meet other parents in a safe and child friendly environment. Besides all the fun that goes on, our friendly team can help answer any questions you may have on parenting, health and if you have money worries give you financial advice on benefits and budgeting.

There are lots of special support groups you can join too such as Young Parents, breastfeeding support, antenatal, postnatal, groups for families with English as a second language, groups to help prepare your child for school, speech and language support and more.

Cllr Mike White, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Children, Young People and Capital Projects, Borough of Poole, said: “Children’s centres are a great way for parents and carers of young children to meet new people and best of all, the sessions they run are free to attend. They can also provide support and advice on a wealth of topics. You don’t need to be a member to go to Poole’s children’s centres, you can just turn up and there will always be somewhere there to welcome you. I would encourage any parent who is looking for somewhere new to take their children to consider a visit to one of our fun and friendly centres.”
