Baby hubs

All four baby hubs run concurrently throughout the Borough. The sessions are led either by the Health Visiting service (HV) or Children’s Centre team (CC).

What is a baby hub?

A baby hub is a place for:

  • Babies to play,
  • Weighing your baby,
  • Parents to meet other parents / carers,
  • Parents or carers to learn about topics specific to your child’s needs and development,
  • No need to book, just turn up!
