Child & Family Centre
Working with children and their families in Linthouse, Govan
The Child and Family Centre has been working with children in Govan since 1986 and is knitted into people's lives in the community. The Centre provides a Pre-School Nursery for an average of 40 children, Parent and Toddler Groups, playgroups, family support classes and advice for parents, plus afterschool clubs and holiday clubs. We want to break the poverty cycle and give the children the best possible start in life. To achieve this we provide a safe, educational and nourishing environment where the children can have fun and are encouraged in their development. We also share with the children about God's amazing love for them.

We also aim to equip parents with skills and confidence - parenting is not always easy! Relationships are key. These are built during weekly coffee mornings, parenting groups, healthy eating and exercise groups and daily conversations. Parenting classes covering a wide range of topics are chosen by parents according to their needs.
