Children's Health & Activities

We're here to support you to care for your child's health until the age of 5

Please give us a call to book your appointment 020 8809 9050 

We provide for your health, information and family support needs.

We go much further than offering an educational environment for your children. The Lubavitch Children’s Centre acts as a focal point for all your health, information and family support needs.

We recognise that having children is an immense pleasure but can also be a very challenging period in anyone’s life. Dealing with a first child is an unknown and often daunting experience and having a new baby whilst caring for you other children can be hard to adjust too.

We, therefore, go much further than offering an educational environment for your children. The Lubavitch Children’s Centre acts as a focal point for all your health, information and family support needs from before the birth of your baby and throughout their childhood – all under one roof.

In addition to our range of health care services for families, we are able to provide advice on how to access the grants and benefits parents are entitled to. We also run sessions on safety in the home including home security, fire safety, first aid for children and schemes for free stair gates and window locks.

We operate a wide range of services but you can be sure that if you or your child has a need we can’t meet, our trained staff will do their best to point you in the right direction.
