Athersley Family Centre is a bright spacious building with a large welcoming reception area, the community room is very spacious and this is where we deliver most of our services from. You can find us on the same grounds as Athersley North Primary school.
The centre offers lots of opportunities for you and your family to spend quality time together, younger children can explore new experiences and learn through play and older children can enjoy taking part in afterschool craft session where they can get creative!
During our baby and toddler groups we provide lots of different fun activities including craft and messy play activities and we have an interactive snack time where your child can enjoy a healthy snack; you can just drop in to the baby groups and play workshops.
Sessions for older children and their families include craft and physical activities, during the summer holidays we have an exciting and full timetable of events and trips that children and young people of all ages can attend with their families. For most of our groups we ask for a contribution of only £1.50 per family, all of the contributions go back into the centre to provide snacks and resources so we can continue to offer high quality services to the community.
