Sure Start Children's Centres Blyth Valley

Barnardo’s North East is commissioned by Northumberland County Council to provide Sure Start Children’s Centres in Blyth Valley. Our centres cover the areas of Blyth, Blyth West, Cramlington East, Cramlington West and Seaton Valley.  

We support Dads, Mums (including parents to be), and carers of children 0-5 yrs old.

Services Include:

Our core purpose is to improve outcomes for young children and their families and to reduce inequalities particularly around:

·         Child development and school readiness
·         Parenting aspirations, self esteem, and skills
·         Family health and wellbeing

We offer family support to parents and carers in their homes, through courses and in groups. We provide information and advice on a range of subjects including looking after babies and young children; child safety equipment and courses; local childcare and education services for 3 and 4 year olds; as well as breastfeeding support.

There are also a range of drop in sessions; support for child minders; weigh and stay sessions; baby groups; baby massage; story time; and buggy walks…to name a few.

Our childcare promotes a warm, caring learning and living environment both indoors and outdoors, and a high quality service of care and education for children and their families in the earliest years.

We offer an inspiring and welcoming environment for children to learn and play, so whether you are a Dad, a Mum, a Grandparent or Carer we welcome everyone to join in our activities and events. It is a chance to meet people and make new friends, to shape your children’s future, and to access a range of local resources through one point of contact.
