Child development team

Overview

We have now launched our new Sure Start Children’s Centre website, bringing you up to date information about all our site.

Sure Start Children’s Centres support children and babies of all abilities, their parents / families, and parents-to-be.

Our services, which are commissioned by Norfolk County Council, are open to all families with children aged under 5, including those with additional needs.

Our aim is to help babies and young children develop in the best way they can - physically, socially and in their early learning too - so that they can flourish at home, and when they go to school. We do this by bringing together health and family support services, childcare and early education, to work with and for local families.

We offer 'universal services' as well as some more specialist support to families with identified extra needs.

Sure Start services include:

  • Child and family health services – including antenatal support and advice, postnatal support, and access to specialist services, such as speech and language therapy
  • Programmes for babies and young children such as baby massage, baby yoga, play sessions
  • Support for parents –advice on parenting, parenting courses, nutrition, nurturing, fathers’ groups families, helping parents into work
  • Integrated early education and childcare

NCH&C manages four Sure Start services around the county:

  • Bowthorpe, West Earlham and Costessey, in Norwich
  • Mundesley, Cromer and North Walsham, in North Norfolk
  • Thetford, in the south of the county
  • North Lynn, Gaywood North Bank and The Wootons, in King's Lynn, in the west of the county

Some of our services are provided in centre buildings, while others are offered in community centres, or even in peoples' own homes, through our outreach teams. In addition, we manage three Sure Start nurseries - Treetops and Kingfisher, in Thetford, and Footsteps in Bowthorpe, in Norwich.
