About the Centre

Welcome to Creswick Children’s Centre’s website, we hope you enjoy your visit.

Creswick Children’s Centre provides services for young children and their families in the South East of Welwyn Garden City community and our aim is to improve the health and well-being of families and children before and after birth.  We support parents/carers and children to promote the physical, intellectual and social development of their children under 5 years, to ensure they continue to flourish when at school.  Creswick is part of a group of Children’s Centres in Welwyn Garden City; the group includes Oak Tree and Waterside Children’s Centres and is led by Ludwick Nursery School

To view our sessions across all 3 centre’s in one place please access our group website here:  WGC Children’s Centre Group
