The Spinney Children's Centre
The Spinney Children's Centre is situated next to the school and can be accessed via a separate entrance. They provide a variety of services for parents including school readiness, parenting courses and access to health services.
Play and Learn
The Spinney Children's Centre offers three stay and play sessions a week for families with children under 5 years. These are carefully planned to encourage parents and children to play together, stimulating the child's imagination and development. One of our Outreach Workers is present during the majority of each session enabling parents to gain support and advice on parenting and child development. They help with applying for FEET funding and finding appropriate childcare.
Many health services are provided at the centre including midwife clinics, well baby clinics, development checks, and advice on starting family foods. They arrange first aid courses and give advice on safety in the home.
The Centre offers access to parenting courses and a referral process enables the Outreach Workers to visit parents in their own home to provide one to one help and advice. There is a programme of adult learning courses running throughout the year.
Employment, Training and Education
The Spinney can offer support with finding employment, writing a C.V. or gaining experience through training. Their dedicated advisor holds one to one meetings to discuss the support required and to guide parents through the process.
