Additional Information

Colin Sure Start is a locally based programme working with parents and children under the age of four. Our main focus is to value and support all children aged 0-4 and their families by providing free services, activities and programmes that focus on early education, health, family support and play development. Our vision is to reach out to families with children aged 0-4 years…laying foundations, creating opportunities and working in partnership to give every child the best possible start in life. The aims of Sure Start are to complement the work of existing local services and provide young families with advice on where to go and who to speak to, if they have more specialised needs or problems. The ongoing support that Sure Start provides can help to make sure that children flourish both at home and when they go to school. Sure Start aims to improve the ability to learn, health and social development of the children that use its services.
