Welcome to the Lewisham Children and Family Centre Website



Home is where the start is: an online family festival of fun and learning

During this fun family event, which will take place via Zoom, we will share information and advice about how parents and carers of under-fives can support children’s learning and development at home through lots of exciting sessions for them and their children.

Activities will include fun communication and language sessions, easy money-saving cookery ideas that you and your children can join in with, baby massage taster sessions and much, much more.

The three-day online festival will run from Thursday 16 March to Saturday 18 March 2023, and parents and carers can book to attend as many or as few free sessions as they like here.
