Child & Family Centres

Back to Activities

Child and Family Centres & Zones in Cambridge offer groups, events, activities, courses and support for families with children aged 0-19.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • meeting other parents and carers is reassuring;
  • groups and activities like ‘Stay and Play’ are excellent ways to support your child’s development and learning;
  • if you need support with any aspect of family life or parenting, you can talk to a professional who can either offer advice or signpost other services.
