Family support

Families can drop-in to any of our sessions and ask for information, support and advice. We recognise that you know your child better than anyone and that you want what is best for your child. We don’t have all the answers, but we can help you find them by:

  • Providing information on local activities and services
  • Meeting with you face to face to talk things through
  • Offering support and advice around a variety of issues such as:
    • Positive parenting, routines, boundaries and managing behaviour
    • Child development and communication
    • Support at key times such as birth of a new baby, settling into pre-school and school
    • Your own well-being and self confidence
    • Financial worries and difficulties including debt, benefits and family legal issues
    • Suggesting fun activities for families to enjoy at home which will support learning and development

You can speak to an Early Years Practitioner at any of the sessions that you come along to but if you would like to request additional support on a one-to-one basis please complete the Registration for Support from Sutton Children’s Centre Outreach Service or contact your local Children’s Centre directly:
