What is a Children’s Centre?
Children's Centres provide a wide range of services for families who have children from 0-5 years old. All Children's Centres offer different services, facilities and activities dependent on the needs of the local community. Children’s Centres form part of local ‘Early Start’ teams along with health visiting teams.
The nearest Children’s Centre to school is Templenewsam and Colton Children’s Centre and it is based on the school site, near the key stage one playground and the entrance to year one. The centre forms part of the Temple Newsam Learning Partnership Trust (TNLP) which is a group of schools and partners working closely together to support children and families across the local area. The centre works with families living in Halton, Whitkirk, Templenewsam, Austhorpe and Colton. Other nearby children’s centres include Meadowfield, Crossgates and Manston, Richmond Hill, Osmondthorpe, Gipton and Garforth. Depending on where your family live, there is a wide range of activities and service to meet your under 5 child’s needs.
