Please click here for our timetable of activities from the 20 February to the 31 March 2017 

We offer a range of activities to support your child's development including parent workshops and courses.

Children benefit from play within a safe environment, where they can build upon what they already know. The activities provided support children in their overall 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/Advice Clinics

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.

Midwifery Care and Pregnancy Support

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 (ideally this link would be attached to the words Better Births so it can just be clicked on:, 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 a 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 2.
