We believe that all families in our locality should have access to high quality services relevant to their needs and that promote learning and social quality.
Eastwood comprises a maintained nursery school (a Council-run school for children under the age of 5); a not-for-profit private day nursery and a Children’s Centre. Each part is equally important and together provide a comprehensive range of services to local babies and young children and their families.
Multi-agency working is at the heart of our work, and we are fortunate to be co-located with the local Health Visiting team, midwives, speech and language therapy, 4 Children (our family support service), Contact a Family, Family Action Newpin, Small Steps School for Parents, Early Years CAMHS and a Consultant Social Worker. The wide range of services on site means that families can easily access the support they need when they need it.
A partnership with parents/carers is critical and our services are just as geared toward parents as to children. Parents and professionals work together each day to find out more about children as individual, unique people and to ensure that together we can provide help where it is needed so that children reach their full potential.
Eastwood is commissioned by Wandsworth Council to provide: –
A Children’s Centre for the babies and young children of Roehampton and their families providing a wide range of integrated early childhood services such as groups, play-sessions, well-baby clinics, information, advice and guidance and some crèche services to help parents access the programme.
