Boscombe Children’s Centre is open Monday-Thursday from 8.30am-4.30pm (closing at 4pm on a Friday) and every third Saturday of the month for Dads’ Group.

We are an outstanding children’s centre, inspected by Ofsted in July 2011. You can read our Ofsted report here:

We are situated at the end of Ashley Close off the main Ashley Road opposite King’s Park. We offer a range of activities and services for local families with children aged from birth to five and also work in partnership with other agencies to meet the needs of families living locally.

There are various activities, courses and workshops held at the centre, including, Breast Friends, Baby Clinic, Weaning Talk, Under One's, Antenatal Classes, Parenting Courses, Wriggle & Rhyme, Storytime and SEN Sensory Play sessions.  Our full activities booklet can be found below.

The children's centre is open throughout the school holidays, but our timetable does change as we organise an exciting range of activities that can take place out and about in the local area.

Boscombe Children's Centre is in the same building as St Clements Nursery which offers high quality care and education for children aged two to five years old. The nursery is open Monday to Friday and offers morning and afternoon sessions. You can call tel: 01202 391505 or mobile: 07766 325217 to speak to the nursery for more information.

For further information about Boscombe Children's Centre and details of future events and activities, please see our activity booklet links below, or please feel free to contact us or pop in. If you’re new to the area or expecting a baby we’d love to meet you – come along for a cup of tea and we will show you around the centre and talk about which groups would suit you and your family.
