**** Essex County Council would like families to give their views on the proposals about the delivery of the county's children's centres from 2014. This is because:

  • They need to consult on making savings of £2.5 million from the Council's children's centres services budget between 2014 and 2016.
  • They want to make sure than any savings they make are in a way that has least impact on the services which matter most to families.
  • They want to save money (where they can) on running buildings and other overhead costs.
  • They want to make sure that they continue to meet the needs of children and their families, particularly those who need their support most.

Welcome to Colchester and Tendring Children's Centres.  We offer a range of services to families with children aged 5 years and under.

The Centres are managed by Barnardos, working in partnership with Essex County Council, families and communities. The centre's are based in Myland, Lexden, Winstree Road, Greenstead, St Anne's and Castle, Berechurch, Highwoods, New Town, Shrub End and a centre in Birch serving rural areas.

Families will find information and support available in each centre and the opportunity to talk to staff leading the groups and activities. There are opportunities for families to meet at drop ins and sessions with rhymes and singing, crafts and physical play. There is information about Job Centre Plus, pre-schools and Childminders network at each centre.

Information about activities at the Colchester and Tendring Children's Centres can be found in the 'What's On' section of this website.

We look forward to seeing many families at the Children's Centres and talking to you about how well your needs as a family are being met.
