Children's Centre to

Family Hub....

The original Children Centres were closed in March 2017 due to cuts in funding. After many discussions, the Head of Chalgrove School along with other members of the local community, decided to apply to reinstate the Chalgrove and Watlington centres. The First Steps family Hubs were launched in March 2017 in order to continue to provide essential support to families with young children in the communities.
