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.
