The Carlton Centre

Opening soon!

Weston Central Childrens Centre closed in 2021 following public consultation.

The Carlton Centre is the new children centre for Weston-super-Mare. It will open soon following extensive refurbishment.

 As part of our new improved offer, we will be increasing our age range to provide services for families with children aged 0-19. Young people with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND) can access our services up to the age of 25.

 Information, advice and guidance

Your family can get information, advice and guidance on subjects like:

  • childcare, childcare funding and free early learning
  • services that can support families with their finances.
  • local services for parents, young people and children


We provide a range of groups including:

  • groups for children under the age of 5, including Let’s Play and Sensory Play. These groups support children’s learning and development.
  • parenting and parental relationships
  • breast feeding support.

One-to-one support for families

We offer families who face more complex challenges intensive support. We work alongside the family to support positive change that will improve outcomes for their children. We can offer this support for a few weeks or for longer as needed.

 NHS services

We work closely with Midwives and health visitors who will provide a range of services from pregnancy to 5 years of age at The Carlton Centre. This includes Ante-natal Fairs and Baby Hubs.

We also work closely with other children centres in our area to plan a range of activities for our children and families to access.
