Rendlesham Children's Centre

One-stop-shop for help, information and bags of fun

The Children’s Centre is located within the primary school; however we have our own entrance and we are completely managed and governed independently of the school.   Look for our rainbow sign just above our door.

The aim of a Surestart Children’s Centre is to improve outcomes for all children. Here we especially concentrate on those children living in Rendlesham and the surrounding villages and our services reflect the needs identified in this area.

Rendlesham Children's Centre has been supporting local families since March 2007.  As a Surestart children’s centre we welcome children aged 0-5 years with their mum, dad, grandma, grandad or carer and offer support, help and information on a wide range of subjects. 

We have a busy programme of activities including, for instance, Toddler Sessions, Music Groups, “Bumps and Babies” and on alternate Sunday mornings, a Dads’ Club with a different theme and activity each time.

The small staff team offers support to fit around your family’s needs.  Most of our services are FREE and we are here for the good days in family life, to share the joys of bringing up children and for the not so good days when you need someone to listen or are in need of some help.

We also offer a library service, access to a public computer, information about local job vacancies and adult education.  We’d love to meet you and hope that you will drop in soon.  We are open Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 9.00 am to 4.30 pm; Tuesday 12.00 noon to 4.30 pm and Friday 9.00 am to 12.30 pm

You could also stop by the centre, to pick up a leaflet or find out what’s going on and how we can help.  We have a public computer; a Job Centre Plus notice board with up to date local jobs.  We have a wide range of library books,  that can be taken out with your Suffolk County Council library card. You can even join the library here.

We have a wealth of information, leaflets and display.  There is a baby change and a kitchen to make your self a cup of tea and relax a while.

More importantly we can also offer a little bit of extra support or help to you and your family when you need it most.

We have lots of other activities going on, just call in or phone us to get your programme.
