Bemerton Children's Centre is one of the nurseries directly managed by the council offering integrated care and education.
Bemerton Children’s Centre is located on the Bemerton Estate close to the Caledonian Road and the Barnsbury area. Services available include early learning and childcare, parenting advice, health services and advice on benefits and returning to work. The centre is open 49 weeks per year for families with babies and children aged six months to five years.
At the Centre you will find a friendly family support team; a well-equipped Stay and Play area where children and their families can experience a range of age appropriate activities; a comfortable parent room for coffee mornings, Parent Forum, info sessions and courses; access to advice, specialist services and parenting classes; a well-resourced setting providing part-time nursery education for 3 to 4 year olds and full day care provision from birth to four; a garden where children can develop their motor skills and learn more about the natural world.
What Parents and Carers say about the Centre: “I have more confidence in my parenting skills”; “The opening hours are good and work around working parents”; “Before my child went to the nursery he wouldn’t share toys with family members now, he shares everything. He is also picking up new skills and words everyday from the nursery and at home.”
