Illingworth Community Children’s Centre

Illingworth Community Children’s Centre is based in the grounds of Whitehill Academy.

We offer a safe, warm and friendly environment to all members of the community, with a focus on children under 5 years of age and their families.

Consultation with families in the area has enabled us to prioritise what services we offer. We focus on developing innovative ways to ensure that parents and users have all been able to influence the services that are available.

We also provide rooms that can be hired out for meetings/courses.

If there is anything you would like to know about the services on offer please contact 01422 243633.

Reviews from some of our parents…

“I have been bringing my 16 Month old to the Wednesday morning playgroup for over 2 months and my daughter thoroughly enjoys the sessions. Children are provided ample opportunities to learn through play. The Messy learning sessions in particular have been excellent.”

“Wow – What an amazing Event! Food/bouncy Castles/Toys , So much fun for my 4 & 6 year old. Sure Start are very generous hosting events like this!”

“We attended Little Learners 3 week course up at Illingworth Children’s Centre and wanted to comment on how brilliant it has been. The lady that ran it was very professional and everything was set out ready for the children to take part in.”
