Yvonne Carr Children's Centre
Updated: 27th August 2020
Children’s Centres in Wandsworth are slowly re-opening following guidance in relation to Coronavirus (COVID-19). At the moment we are offering a limited number of sessions which are currently by invitation only, due to social distancing restrictions. We hope to increase capacity if restrictions are lifted further.
We are currently unable to provide any drop-in or walk-in sessions and the Health Visiting Team are not able to deliver any health clinics in children’s centres at the moment. However the Health Visiting Team are offering some services, so if you have need to speak to your Health Visitor then please contact the central number - 0333 300 2350 (lines are manned Monday to Friday from 8am to 8pm and Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays from 8am to 5pm)
Please complete a registration form if you have not done so already and continue to check this site regularly for updated information.
