We are situated on School Lane, next to the Sturton by Stow Primary School. Parking spaces for Children’s Centre customers are generally available on School Lane.

We do have a car park with limited parking on the school site. To access the Centre, you come to the far right of the school car park. Please be aware that the car park becomes very busy with cars, as parents are collecting their children from school. The busy times are between the times of 8.45am - 9.00am, 11.45am - 12.15pm and 2.45pm - 3.15pm

A monthly calendar of activities is available for parents, carers or grandparents of under 5’s to access a wide range of free sessions throughout the week at certain times during Monday to Friday. During the School Holidays we offer a range of free activities and sessions for 0-5 years we endeavour to cater for older siblings up to the age of 8 years at this time too

The Centre has a recently remodelled secure outdoor play area with shade where the children and babies can play. We encourage outdoor play, whatever the weather!
