Tarner Children's Centre offers services for families with children under 5 years in Central Brighton, Tarner, Hanover, Elm Grove and Kemp Town area. The smaller, gateway children's centres for these areas are based at Cornerstone Community Centre on Church Road in Hove, City View at Brighton General Hospital, and at Fairlight School.

Tarner Children's Centre was rated 'outstanding' by Ofsted in March 2011. The report is available from the Ofsted website.

We are very pleased to announce that Cornerstone Children's Centre has also just received an 'Outstanding' Ofsted report.

The Sure Start Children's Centre teams are based at Tarner and City View children's centres. The teams are made up of health visitors, early years visitors, community nursery nurse and speech therapists. The teams work with families, individuals and groups, in the home and in the centre.

Group activities are held in the children's centres. Some of these are drop-in sessions and others are by appointment or referral. All groups for Tarner and Cornerstone are listed in the Tarner CC activity diary Sept 2014 [PDF 250KB] and the diary for City View and Fairlight CCs Sept 2014 [PDF 263KB].
