Shirley Children’s Centre
Shirley Children’s Centre has undergone exciting
changes in the last year. Now managed by Forest
Academy (which replaced the predecessor school on the Spring
Park Primary School site in 2013), it offers a range of activities and
courses to suit the needs and wishes of local families. Why not
come along and see for yourself what is on offer? Our staff are
passionate about children and their families and are confident that
they can offer you a valuable experience, of learning,
friendship and advice.
So what do we do?
Shirley Children’s Centre runs a varied programme of
activities for families in the local area. All activities
are free and available for anyone with a child under
the age of 5. Our programme includes:
• Stay and Play (play session for all under 5s)
• Musical Bumps (music and movement session for
children and parents)
• Parenting Courses (helping parents along the sometimes
bumpy road of parenthood)
• Specialist Courses (help and support for families
living with and surviving domestic abuse)
• Mind Body and Fitness (Yoga/Pilates blend of gentle
exercises and stretches)
• Translation Services (helping families where English is
an additional language with documents and forms)
• Welfare Advice Service (help and support to discuss
and complete benefit forms)
• Access to Work (help with getting individuals back
intowork, training, apprenticeships or volunteering)
• Health Visitors (Well baby clinic and support from
health visitors)
• Midwives Clinic (antenatal appointments for
expectant mums and dads)
