Early Years Services

The Colin Sure Start Early Years Team deliver a wide and varied range of programmes, suitable from birth, right through to the child’s fourth birthday. Our early years programmes are designed with our local families in mind, and our aim is to provide activities that can cater for all interests and abilities. 

At Colin Sure Start, we strongly believe that the parent is the most important educator in their child’s life, therefore, we strive to involve parents and carers in each programme we offer. 

Our programmes include activities for babies such as Baby Time and the ever popular aquababes right up to nursery age children through our programmes such as Talk & Toddle.  Colin Sure Start recognises that early year's growth and development can happen quickly and that it is important to offer opportunities that benefit our children and families at every stage. We aim to do this through a diverse range of services such as rhythm, rhyme & story time sessions, our Play & Grow Programmes and our Toy Lending service. Transitions are seamless at Colin Sure Start, with many families progressing onto the Sure Start Developmental Programme for 2-3 year olds, Play 2 Learn and Little Rainbows development groups. 

You will find that inclusion and supporting families has a strong focus embedded in our Early Years Services. We aim to reflect the needs and interests of the families within the Colin area in each service we plan and deliver. Our Early Years management and staff work closely with a range of external agencies and organisations, to ensure that signposting is appropriate and timely. These strong links ensure we are able to provide families with the support they require and the expertise of these other agencies in incorporated into the programmes we deliver internally. Our Early Years and Speech and Language support teams continuously work in close partnership together.  This allows for professional speech and language therapy advice to be available for local families at their request.   

Colin Sure Start Early Years Services really do have something for everyone.
