About Us

Early experiences significantly impact later life. Children learn from birth. The most significant brain development happens in the early years. Early education results from interactions between children and all adults who serve as their caregivers, including parents, relatives, baby sitters, teachers, and child care providers.

A significant number of parents feel they are not ready for bringing up their children when they arrive, there is no maual to look into for the 'how to', but with lots of role models out there, and professional support, parents usually domuch better than 'ok' and look back and can compliment themselves that they made a brilliant job of it

The quality of information and advice about children and child care has to be improved ao parents and carers can trust the information which is given to them and who better to be giving that information than a group of professionally trained highly experienced health visitors. 

Children given high-quality care are better prepared to be successful than children in low-quality care, yet nationwide studies find that fewer than half of child care and after school settings can be considered good or excellent. 

 
 

Serving children is our highest priority. We see ourselves as partners with parents and providers and caregivers to ensure good advise and support for the good development and upbringing of children.
