The planned Family and Children's Centre which will be built on Stamford Street will inlcude such things as a breakfast club, after school care, parent/carer sessions and more. However, until the building is completed, another temporary structure is opening to fill immediate needs.

This temporary structure, 99A Upper Ground, is housed behind the National Theatre and opens Saturday 1 March. The open day begins at noon with arts and crafts based environmental workshops and continues until 4pm with storytelling and face painting.

Childcare activities will start immediately after the Easter holidays and will include most of the facilities available in the Family and Children?s Centre. Parents interested in touring the facility, and finding out more and registering can phone Karen Viggars at 020 7633 0835 or Clare Middleton at 020 7593 3107 for more information. However, the carers recommend dropping by the opening to talk to them personally. All activities are free.
