Pokesdown Children's Centre, is a centre for children and families in the Pokesdown area. Situated off the main Christchurch Road, we are close to Pokesdown train station.
We have a range of activities within the centre and work with groups and services within the community to ensure we meet the needs of local families and children aged from birth to five years and expectant parents.
The centre has well-equipped and refurbished facilities which include:
- indoor and outdoor learning areas
- IT suite
- training rooms
- disabled access.
We have an Ofsted registered crèche and pre-school. The crèche offers a warm, friendly atmosphere rich in learning opportunities. The pre-school offers Early Education funded places for children aged between three and five years.
All staff have early years qualifications and a wealth of skills and expertise. We are a Healthy Early Years accredited setting and have achieved full Bournemouth Quality Standards accreditation.
If you require specific additional support services, then we work closely with our neighbouring children's centres in Southbourne and Boscombe.
Feel free to just drop in to the centre or contact us directly to talk about any of our sessions. Alternatively, a local professional such as your health visitor can advise or refer you.
Please complete our parent satisfaction survey to let us know what you think of our services and how we may improve these in the future.
