Activities at The Brooks Children's Centre

In light of the current situation regarding Covid-19, a decision has been made to close some of our children centres as of Monday 23 March 2020. The affected centres are:

  • Knutsford
  • Poynton
  • Broken Cross
  • Hurdsfield
  • Sandbach including Alsager and Middlewich
  • Nantwich
  • Oak Tree
  • Monks Coppenhall

If you have a midwife clinic appointment at one of the above centres, you will be contacted by a community midwife to inform you of your new appointment venue.

Our other children centres (Oakenclough, Ash Grove, The Brooks and Congleton) remain open for midwifery clinics.

Please see below for our current early start offer. We are using EventBrite to book places onto these sessions. If you experience issues accessing EventBrite, please contact the Family Information Service on 0300 123 5033 who will be able to assist. By using EventBrite to book your place, you will be automatically registered with your local children’s centre.

If further information is needed for your booking, a member of the children centre will contact you. If your booking is successful you will receive an email immediately confirming your place.

In line with the health and safety of our service users and our staff, please do not attend any of our sessions if you are showing symptoms of COVID-19.

As the sessions are held outside, please dress appropriately. Sessions will only be cancelled in extreme weather.
