Kingswood Year 3 - Kingfisher Class
Kingfisher Class: On Tuesday we used: atlases, a class world map, a circumpolar floor map and iPad map apps to locate and describe places we know.
We offer a range of activities to support your child's development including parent workshops and courses.
Your nearest Food Bank is Norwood Food Bank which is at St Lukes Church and is open on Tuesdays 10am -1pm and Fridays. It is advisable to get a food bank voucher from us first, but if feel unable to do so, you can visit the food bank and they will ask you to speak to their advice worker about your situation and they will then issue you with a voucher to be used on the day.

Children learn from play within a safe but stimulating environment. The activities provided support children in their developmental needs in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage. Staff support parents to understand their child's development and provide a range of activities for children and parents to enjoy.
Parent courses, workshops and advice clinics are designed to help parents support their children, and to support parents to develop their employment skills. We run workshops and courses on topics related to health, such as weaning and healthy sleep pattern advice. We run courses to support developing spoken and written English for people whose English is not their first language. Some courses teach strategies and techniques to deal with challenging behavior and developing positive and helpful boundaries with your child. We also offer courses that develop skills to find employment either now or in the future.

Two midwifery groups offer antenatal clinic appointments at Kingswood Children's Centre as part of King's College Hospital's maternity services: Birchtree and Horizon.
Birchtree (formerly known as the Brierley midwives) are based at the Children's Centre and offer caseload care, mainly for women in the West Norwood/Tulse Hill/West Dulwich area. In accordance with the National Maternity Review for Better Births. This service is designed to allow women to get to know their named midwife and have greater continuity during labour, birth and at home in the postnatal period. Birchtree midwives primarily care for women who are interested in or planning to give birth at home; who have complex mental health needs; or who require additional continuity.
If you would like to contact the Birchtree midwives to discuss your care, or would like to find out more about the criteria, availability or self-referrals, please call 0203 409 0704 and select option 1.
All are welcome who have accessed maternity services, pregnancy, pregnancy losses and births at Kings Denmark Hill or at home in the last 2 years. We want feedback on what went well and what could be improved. We have a Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/kings-maternityvoices-36603583359479
