In 2016, the Children’s Centres were replaced by Family Wellbeing Hubs; you can read our updated article here.

There are 10 different centres based in West Berkshire, providing guidance and support for families with children under the age of 5. Surestart is a government initiative that aims to provide extra support where needed and runs ‘Stay and play’ sessions to provide an opportunity to meet other families in your local area.

Each centre holds various drop-ins and classes based in and around their areas. Our calendar includes as many of these as possible, though some classes vary or are by appointment only so may not be included. Please note that all West Berkshire Children’s Centres are closed on bank holidays. See below for further information:
