Lincoln - Carholme Children's Centre

The Carholme Children’s Centre is situated on Blenheim Road next to St Faiths Infant School in the West End of Lincoln. The centre has a car park with a disabled space.

There is an outdoor play area at back of the centre with a construction play area, playhouse, space to ride tricycles, a mud kitchen and fruit trees. Parents and carers can borrow storysacks (books and story themed toys) from the centre to help aid their child’s development at home.

The centre activities are aimed at under 5s, however during half term and school holidays sessions are open to children aged 0 to 8 years. We welcome mums, dads, grandparents, carers and older siblings.

Come along and explore the centre, we look forward to meeting you!
