East City and Framingham Earl Area Children’s Centre is a Sure Start Children’s Centre which is based on the site of Cavell Primary School. It is a centre which works with families who have children aged between 0 and 5 throughout the south part of the city, as far south as Brooke any family, no matter where they live can attend. We currently run activities and courses on a wide range of themes, from 14 different venues throughout our reach area. Unless otherwise stated, all activities are FREE at the point of contact.
