Carr Children's Centre

Important announcement regarding York's Children's Centres

We are operating a reduced Children’s Centre offer. Children’s Centres are remaining open, only for essential planned appointments. These are for Children’s Social Care and Midwife appointments. All other open access groups will not be operating from the Children Centre sites until at least the end of April.

We will continue to review the availability of provision in line with current advice. This information is subject to change and will be updated.


Please email York Family Information Service at should you have any questions.
