Important announcement regarding York's Children's Centres

Following the latest Government announcement to continue restrictions on public gatherings and social interactions, York Children’s Centres will continue to be open only for essential planned appointments for Children’s Social Care and Midwife appointments. Children’s centres will remain closed to all open access groups until at least the end of June 2020.


Plans are in development for the safe reopening of wider children’s centre groups when the time is right. There is no current date set for the reopening of wider children’s centre groups. 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.
