Norden Sure Start Children’s Centre

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Activities at the centre

There's a warm welcome to mums, dads, grandparents and carers with children aged 0-5 years as well as childminders and those who look after children. We offer fun and informal sessions and activities most of which are offered from our centre but we also run sessions in the community such as 'Story Time' at Norden Library and 'Little Swimmers' at Oulder Hill Swimming Baths.

Typical sessions include:

  • Baby Massage - a wonderful way to spend quality bonding time with your baby.
  • Crafty Kids - a crafty time with something new to make and do.
  • Baby Sing and Sign - learn simple songs and signs with your baby, aid their communication and language development. 

Fun, family friendly activities throughout the week can be found on the full timetable of activities.
