Thameside Children's Centre is a purpose built and newly opened Children's Centre. It shares an entrance and reception area with Thameside Infant School Nursery. The School and the Centre work in close partnership. Children's Centres offer a range of information and activities for those families with children under the age of 5 years. This includes integrated Childcare, Childminder Support, Family Support and Parental Outreach Support, Health Services and links with Jobcentre Plus.  

We are open all year round and offer a varied programme of services and activities for families living in the Grays Riverside Ward.

 Sure Start Children's Centres are a 'one stop shop' for children under five and their families, where skilled staff are on hand to give help and advice.

You can go there for:
  • health advice
  • parenting and family support
  • playsession and childcare
  • help to get a job or training
  • a place to meet other parents.
Thousands of mums and dads and children across the country are already enjoying the benefits.
