Purley Oaks Children's Centre

A wide range of activities are on offer providing opportunities to learn new skills and develop confidence whist having fun. Your child can make new friends as they play, while you may need advice on family matters, job training or childcare while having a coffee and a chat with others.

The aim of Purley Oaks Children’s Centre is for parents to have a fun and an enjoyable time, together, with their child, whilst trying out different activities in our well equipped family room. We have a creative area, role play area, books, construction, to name a few! We have an outside area with outdoor toys including sand and water areas. We also have the opportunity to use the school’s fantastic new garden area.

This children's centre is part of the Best Start service – find out how you can access support.
