Yvonne Carr Children's Centre
A message from Wandsworth Children's Centres
Dear Parents and Carers,
I hope in these extraordinary times you and your family are doing well.
We know social distancing can be limiting and it’s difficult to find new ways to keep busy and support young children with their development and emotional wellbeing. To help you find a range of activities you could get involved with from home, we have developed virtual services. You can access these services via contact with your local Cluster Children’s Centres.
There are a small number of services that are being delivered from centres, these will need to be booked in advance.
Children’s Centres staff are working remotely. So, if you have a question, need some information, advice or guidance our Early Help staff are still here to talk over the phone or email.
Battersea Cluster - Sabrina Small firstname.lastname@example.org
Roehampton Cluster - Jennie Ramsey email@example.com
Tooting Cluster - Jennifer Hindmoor firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you and your families very soon!
Take care and stay safe.
