Plenty of fun for the children this Easter holiday

Childrens Centres

Nottingham City Council Children’s Centres are gearing up for a host of events to keep the little ones entertained over the Easter holidays.

There’ll be something for all the family including Easter egg hunts and Frozen-themed parties.

There are 18 Children’s Centres across the city and they offer a range of free services and activities for families and their children. Services can vary at each centre according to the needs of the local community, but all centres provide links to childcare, family support and a range of parent and toddler activities.

All of the centres have family support teams who work with children and young people from birth to 19 and their families, offering play and youth activities, and support in areas including disability, mental health, emotional wellbeing and school attendance.
