Top Valley & Bestwood Park Children's Centre
Family support and activities for children under 5 and their families
Children's Centres bring together a range of free services for children from birth to five, and their families. Services vary at each centre according to local community needs but all centres provide links to childcare, family support and a range of parent and toddler activities. Anyone who cares for or is expecting a child can register to use the centres.
Family support teams who work with children and young people from birth to nineteen and their families, are also based in and around our Children's Centres. Services vary but they all offer play and youth activities, and support in areas including disability, behavioural difficulties, mental health, emotional wellbeing and school attendance.
Once you register to use a children's centre you can take part in activities or use services across all centres in Nottingham. Complete our online registration form or call in to your nearest centre.
