Children’ centres in Knowsley provide a range of services to meet the needs of individual families. The Children’s Development and learning team’s provide both universal and targeted sessions to help support children aged under 5 reach their potential in fun, stimulating play and targeted sessions.

Family First offer targeted work to families who need an intervention/support package in the home.

Children’s centres provide access to high quality services where everyone is welcome. We also believe children are all unique and therefore provide flexibility to tailor services to ensure all children are given opportunities to play in sessions/environments that meets their needs.

 We support children and families with special Educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and families with English as an additional language (ESOL) in universal and targeted sessions. This may be in a Childrens Centre, community or in the home.
