KAAZ children's Activities



Otley Children's Centre is "ready for the off!" the newly refurbished building and extension on the Ashfield Primary School site is now complete. All staff will be in post from the beginning of July and we are looking forward to working with children, parents, carers and professionals in the area.

Otley Children's Centre will be working alongside the communities of Otley, Pool and Bramhope, aiming to contribute to the commitment of giving every child the best start in life, providing better opportunities for the family access to affordable and good quality childcare and a stronger and safer community. Staff are committed to working towards a future where all children and young people within Otley and the wider community, are able to realise their potential and are happy and fulfilled, both individually and as contributing members of society.

Otley Children's Centre believes that every child really does matter and is dedicated to providing a programme based on the principle that, providing access to integrated education, care and family support and health services is a key factor in determining outcomes for children and families.

We will provide a menu of activities such as Parent and Toddler Groups, Adult Education Classes, Links with Job Centre Plus and Children’s Information Services advice regarding childcare options and fun activities for children, and their parents to join in with both during term time and in the school holidays.

Everyone is welcome and will always receive a cheerful greeting. We will be open 51 weeks a year, Monday to Friday 8.00am until 6.00pm

The staff from the Children's Centre will be busy over the next few months getting out and about In Otley, Pool and Bramhope giving out further information about the Children's Centre and how it may be of use to you and your family. We are looking forward to meeting as many people as possible, so look out for us and don't hesitate to ask us any questions
