What we do
The outreach base in Wool is located in the village hall and is part of Bovington Children's Centre. Our staff team create a welcoming learning environment in the hall, where families can access equipment and activities to help develop skills in both parenting and in pre-school readiness. Some of our activities are run from the Kids of Wool building whilst many more are run from our main centre in Bovington.

Included in the activity programme are Purbeck cluster parent drop-in sessions (pdf, 227kb) (opens in a new window) offering free advice and information on areas such as budgeting and childcare. There are also baby & child resuscitation courses (pdf, 488kb) (opens in a new window) taking place at each Purbeck Children's Centre between December 2013 to January 2014.
Why not drop in to see what is on offer. Please phone ahead to check that someone will be available to show you around.
We are committed to safeguarding children and can offer support and advice. Find more information on safeguarding children, how we assess children who need extra support and how you can volunteer at the centre on our essential information for all Children's Centres web page
Additional support if you need it
For families who may need that extra little bit of help we can offer the support of one of our outreach workers who can help on a one to one basis with behaviour management, tricky eaters, parenting advice or additional needs (Early Support) and for families with English as an additional language. If you are confused about benefits, housing and maternity entitlements, returning to work or disability living allowance, we can sign post you to someone who can help.
Location and parking
We are in the centre of Wool next to the D'urberville Hall. There is plenty of free parking, however please note the car park is busy on Thursdays as there is a market running that day.
We are always interested in talking to people who would like to work with us as either a volunteer or by providing a service from within our centres. Please contact us for more information.
