Children’s centre services

Meadowfield, Templenewsam & Colton Children’s Centre 

Working together to provide the best service for children and families in the Halton, Halton Moor, Killingbeck, Colton, Austhorpe and Whitkirk areas.

The key aim of the Children’s Centre is to ensure all infants, young children and families are supported to have the best possible start in life. This is achieved by promoting good health, safety, wellbeing and enhancing school readiness outcomes. We offer 1:1 support for families around parenting, finances, housing, behaviour management, domestic abuse, and more. The centre also promotes children and family relationships through its universal offer of family learning sessions and courses, play and stays, workshops, behaviour management and healthy relationship courses.  

The team also support children who are at risk of harm and their focus is Early intervention. We work closely with the Temple Newsam Community Partnership Cluster Team and other agencies. The service is predominantly focussed on families with children aged 0-5 years.
