- Free quality, part-time childcare for 2-3 year olds for 12.5 hours per week in 5 x 2.5 hour sessions
- An enhanced Health Visiting service
- Access to Parenting Programmes ranging from Support Groups to Baby Massage and Aqua Tots. More Language and Play programmes are available in each area with an increased range of advice and activities.
- Early Language Development
Who is this for?
