Atwood's Children's Centre building is no longer operational.  Instead, parents can find services at the Woodlands Children's Centre (based at Gilbert Scott School) including stay and play and baby massage sessions each week.

What services does a Children's Centre provide?

Croydon's children's centres offer services, activities and support for families with children under five. They are open to all and you do not need an appointment to come along. Most activities, apart from childcare, are either offered free or at a small cost.

Every centre is unique and provides a wide range of services and activities you might need as a parent or carer with a baby or young child, for example:

• health services like breastfeeding support, baby clinics, nutrition and post natal groups
• drop-ins and 'stay and plays' for parents and carers to bring their babies and children to play
• jobs, careers and training information for parents and carers who are thinking about looking for work
• childcare and/or early education.
