Building works

Sure Start Centre- Northumberland Avenue Dear Parents,

We are pleased to inform you that there will be exciting developments taking place to the main building over the next nine months. The improvements will include a court yard to the front of the building, a new reception area and link corridors to a variety of services. Families will be able to freely access the social club, café, toilets, a library and events rooms.

The Children’s Centre will move to the Youth Building and will gain additional play space and their own garden. The alterations to the building will start from this week and from then temporary access to the Children’s Centre will be via the side exit, through the black gates. To gain access to the Children’s Centre please follow the walk passage and turn right at the end, there will be a new intercom located at the door.

Business Support will join the Family Development Worker Team in the Orange office and will greet visitors by an intercom. Visitors, Families and New Directions classes will also use this entrance which flows into the main Children’s Centre room.

Many thanks in advance for your patience and understanding.

Kind regards from the team at Whitley Children’s Centre
