Children's centres

What are children's centres and why should you register?

Children's centre services are for all families living in Camden who are expecting a child or already have children under five.

There are 14 children's centres across Camden all offering nursery and childcare places and providing other services close to where you live.

When you register, we will contact you with information about all our services and email or post you information about what is going on in your local area.

Family support service

Our family support teams are based in five of our children's centres. They offer a range of support such as parenting classes, can visit you in your own home and help you access the services you need. Our family support teams have access to interpreters.

  • Jobs, training and careers advice, with one-to-one support to help you find work.
  • Housing and benefits advice as well as links with other departments in the council.
  • Support and information for disabled parents and parents with children who have special educational needs and disabilities.

Children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND)

Some of our activities, such as drop-ins, are provided for children with SEND. Other activities are available for disabled parents and carers. See drop-ins (above) for further details.

Activities - get involved in your community 

As well as opportunities to get involved in volunteering and developing your skills, join us on a children's centre advisory board. The boards meet regularly and are for parents and local organisations to help us run children's centres across Camden. Your views and involvement are important to us.
