Southernway Children's Centre

Southernway Children’s Centre is managed by Barnardo’s and provides a variety of groups and activities and welcomes all local parents and parents to be to their Centre at Beechwood Primary School, Rockfield Avenue, Southway.

Our aim as a Children’s Centre is to provide a seamless service of support for families with children under 5 right through from pregnancy until school. 

We provide a wide variety of sessions including:

  • Great Expectations
  • Breastfeeding support
  • Stay and Play sessions

The children’s centre also runs a chatterbox group which is a stay and play session with a baby weighing clinic covered by the local Health Visitor teams.

 Some of our groups are drop in groups where everybody is welcome and no pre-booking is required. However due to limited spaces booking is essential on some sessions so please contact the centre to speak to a member of staff. We invite carers to make a small donation at some of our sessions. 

Groups and activities run by the Children’s Centre follow the Five to Thrive approach. Five to Thrive is a family friendly approach to promoting healthy brain development and positive relationships. Central to the five to thrive approach are a set of five key activities:

  1. Respond
  2. Cuddle
  3. Relax
  4. Play
  5. Talk

all of which are promoted and encouraged during sessions by the Children’s Centre staff.
