Sure Start Children’s Centres are places where children under 5 years old and their families can receive seamless integrated services and information.

It is also where they can access help from a range of multi-disciplinary teams of professionals. These Centres are at the heart of the Government’s strategy to deliver better outcomes for children and families.

Services and activities are delivered from Masbro Children’s Centre, Edward Woods, Masbro Brook Green, Masbro Flora Gardens Children's Centre and Shepherds Bush Families Project and Children’s Centre (SBFP & CC).

We also run a nursery at Masbro Children’s Centre for children eligible for the 2 year offer of 15 hours free childcare.
