Abbey Children's Centre

We are attached to the Lincoln Baptist Church on Croft Street, and we take pride in providing a warm welcome to all families, where they can attend a wide range of play and learning activities in a safe environment with a real community atmosphere. 

We offer something for all ages, from expectant parents, babies and toddlers, right up to when little ones start school. We also hold free adult learning courses, each designed to provide additional skills and support for parents/carers, across a wide range of subjects. We can also offer advice and assistance with job seeking and returning to work.
