We run five Children’s Centres across Wythenshawe, offering age appropriate sessions for under 5’s, antenatal, health visitor appointments, and an outreach service. Our outreach team specifically provides 1-2-1 support to local families under 5’s.

We run a full programme of free sessions and activities across the centres, for you and your family. You can find the latest timetable on our Facebook page or any of our centres. Please note, booking is recommended for all sessions as drop-ins are only possible where there is capacity on the day.

Our ambition is to work together to enable every child in Manchester to have the best possible start in life.
