Packington Children's Centre operates from four sites. Our community and outreach services at the Packington Hub include family support and drop-in sessions; antenatal and post natal clinics; child health reviews; housing advice and information sessions.
Packington Children's Centre has two nursery sites, with one in Popham Road and another off Ecclesbourne Road - both just five minutes' walk from Essex Road station.
Our nursery on Popham Road has been awarded 'Outstanding' twice in the last five years and has 22 places for children aged 3 months to 3 years. Bentham Court, Packington's newest nursery has just received an 'Outstanding' Ofsted report in March 2018. The new nursery provides an addiitonal 35 full-time, high quality day care and education for children aged 2-5 years. Both nurseries are very popular with parents and provide children with a rich learning environment.
We host an open morning/tour of the nursery for new parents on the last Friday of every month. Booking is essential for this tour.
We run stay and play sessions for parents with children aged 0 to 5.
