Visit to Kingswood Children’s CentrePosted: May 17, 2013
I recently visited Kingswood Children’s Centre and met the staff, a group of parents and their children.
I was hugely impressed by the work of Catherine Welsh and her team in making Kingswood into such a valuable resource for the local community through the provision of a wide range of activities every week.
In particular, it was great to see how the Centre was ‘parent-led’, encouraging familes to come forward with ideas and then engaging them in turning these into actions.
It provided me with a good opportunity to listen to parents’ concerns and I came away with quite a number of follow-up points.
The children were obviously enjoying the stimulating and nurturing environment provided by the Centre and we all had fun in the ‘messy room’!”
