Maiden Newton Children's Centre is an outreach base to Dorchester and supports parents with children 'Under 5' years and up to '7' years where there are specific needs. Find out what's on offer and when activities are available.
What we offer
We run various activities for parents, carers and their children at Maiden Newton outreach base which is linked to Dorchester Children's Centre.
As well as running activities, extra support for families who may need it is available by contacting our Dorchester centre. As the centre at Maiden Newton is an outreach base, staff are not always on the premises and opening times vary. Please contact our outreach support worker who can help you with information, advice and signposting to other agencies.
The building at Maiden Newton can be used by other services and agencies, particularly if their core work is linked to children under five and their families, or for a training event.
