Austin Sunnyhill

Oaklands Childrens Centre Austin Sunnyhill Children's Centre is part of SureStart - the government's aim to give every child the best start in life. The centre offers you a friendly and welcoming environment. It works with parents, parents-to-be and carers of children to promote the physical, intellectual and social development of children.

Families can access childcare, health services and family support at the Centre, as well as information and advice on training or education, stay and play sessions and more.

We also have a children's nursery at our Homelands Early Years Centre site. The nursery is owned by 'Action for Children', and is for children aged 0 to five years old. For more information, contact the Nursery Manager on 01332 766127.
