Otley Childrens Centre is a Surestart Childrens Centre.

We are a phase two centre which means we
service an area with some pockets of deprivation.

Childrens Centres are service hubs where children aged 0-5 years and their families can receive
seamless, integrated services, signposting and information.

Services vary according to the needs in the
community served by that centre.


At Otley we have :

  • Support for parents and carers, including advice on parenting & local childcare.
  • Pre & post natal health support.
  • Access to Baby breast feeding advice and support.
  • Help & advice on benefits, employment and training at a regular appointment session delivered by Job Centre Plus.
  • Mini Movers parent/carer and toddler sessions.
  • Kidscope 0-19 parent/carer advice appointments.
  • Free play and baby time sessions.
  • Pram to primary parenting courses run regularly.
  • Henry healthy living and nutrition courses run regulary.

The Child Protection Policy is available as a hard copy and is located in the entrance

This will enable us to support the best possible outcome for children and young people and to improve the opportunity for their well-being


We work in partnership with parents/carers and other services to deliver improved outcomes for children.


We are also able to do ROSPA accredited safety checks giving families access to items making their home safer for their children.
