Saltburn Children's Centre begins campus investment.

artists impression of Learning Campus siteThe new Saltburn Children's Centre, the first part of a major multi-million pound education investment for the town, is ready to open its doors to the area's families next month.
The £1.5million development, on the Huntcliff School site, will be home to the town's Sure Start programme, a private day care nursery and a relocation for Langbaurgh Primary Care Trust clinics and consultation. Saltburn Children's Centre is designed to provide a focus for family learning and a kickstart for the whole Learning Campus concept. Sure Start is all about children, parents and communities, bringing together early education, childcare, health and family support under one roof to provide an accessible and flexible service.
The Council has already given outline planning approval for new buildings for Huntcliff School and Saltburn Primary School to be co-located on the Huntcliff site.
The Childrens Centre's admin office will be open from Monday, June 5, then, two weeks later, plans to start activities in its children's room and adjoining training facility, covering parent and toddler sessions, childminders' drop-in and family support.
Langbaurgh PCT, moving from offices in Bath Street, will provide some clinics and a podiatry (chiropody) suite, hopefully from Monday, June 19. Eventually, some health visitors and school nurses will also be moving into the building.
Rosedene Nurseries are also ready to open its 45-place day care facility, catering for children, aged six weeks to five years, on the same day.
