Starfish And Orchard Children's Centre
Give your child the best start with access to services and information to help you and your child.
We have access to early education as well as fun, interactive sessions for children like stay-and-play and parent and toddler groups.
If you're a new mum, there's support at the centre from our community midwives as well as baby health clinics so you can keep track of your child's development.
And if you're looking to get back into work, there's help on hand with our regular Job Centre Plus sessions, and you can access adult education and training.
Our team can also advise parents, so whatever challenges you face drop in to the centre and find out how we can support you.
Give your child the support they need in their early years with plenty of activities available to help them develop.
Our team runs a variety of sessions like stay-and-play groups to help your child develop.
You'll be able to meet other parents and learn from their experiences in our parent and baby groups and regular organised walks.
Plus there's support with adult learning workshops and advice from our team of experts.
Starfish Children's Centre is open from 9am - 5pm every day.

As part of overall health and wellbeing, it is important that children maintain a healthy weight. Currently, one in five Hampshire children in Year R are categorised as either overweight or obese. Learn more about the Hampshire Healthy Weights Strategy and the work which underpins it by visiting the website below.
Your Opinion Counts
When your child is suffering from one of the common childhood illnesses eg a fever, rattly chest, runny nose, diarrhoea & vomiting, rash, urine infection; we would like to know what health services you use and how you think they could be improved.
Sometimes it is confusing to understand which services to use and when, and sometimes parents may choose to visit their A&E department or call 999 for an ambulance – when actually, if more local services were available, their child could have been looked after in the comfort of their own home.
The Wessex Healthier Together project has been set up to review how urgent paediatric care could be better delivered to children (aged under 5years) in your area; and part of the process is to listen to the views of parents and carers.
Your thoughts are very important and we would be grateful if you could take 5mins to complete the survey for Parent/Carer/Guardians at: http://www.healthiertogetherwessex.nhs.uk/surveys/
