Lancashire Children's Centres


Lancashire County Council has overseen the development of 79 children’s centres across the county between April 2004 and March 2011.  The children’s centres provide a range of high quality services to children aged under 5 and their families.   The multi-agency services are based around a ‘core offer’ of child & family health, early education & childcare, family support and employment & training.   Services provided vary between centres in order to meet local need.

Children's centres contribute towards ensuring that every child gets the best start in life.They also work towards better opportunities for parents, and a stronger and safer community. Children’s centres have links to a range of local, affordable, good quality childcare providers.

  • Early education with full day care, including provision for children with special educational needs and or disabilities
