The Phoenix Children's Centre
The Phoenix Children’s Centre is committed to supporting and guiding families and carers of children under 5. Our centre is striving to be the heart of the local community by being an open and friendly place, where the staff and outside agencies help families and carers in all aspects of their life to better the outcomes for their children.
Get the support and advice you need to be a parent and help your child develop with a range of activities.
Our team runs a series of stay-and-play groups and sessions designed to boost your child's development.
The centre offers PEEP (Parents Early Education Partnership) courses for Under 1’s and Rising Twos (17months – 24 months). The PEEP programme helps parents and carers create the best start for their babies and children by making the most of everyday learning opportunities - listening, talking, playing, singing, and sharing books and stories together. There is an opportunity to gain a recognised qualification from this course.
Young Mums Matter is an accredited course which runs over twelve weeks. It is designed for mums under the age of 25yrs and offers you the opportunity to learn vital skills to manage independently and successfully as a family.
HENRY (Health, Exercise and Nutrition in the Really Young) will also be coming to the centre soon.
Meet with your local Police Community Support Officer during Beat Surgery for a confidential informal chat to discuss issues such as anti-social behaviour, environmental issues, any concerns about the community or neighbourhood or to initiate a community project.
Come along to an In Touch Drop In session for advice on housing, debt and finances.

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.

Wessex Healthier Together - Parent Consultation
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 Hampshire, Dorset & Wiltshire areas; 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/
