Lilypad Children's Centre



⭐️⭐️⭐️ Unfortunately, we have had to delay reopening our Children’s Centres following the Prime Minister’s announcement on 14th June that social distancing measures are to remain in place until 19th July. If social distancing measures are lifted on 19th July, we plan to start reopening our buildings from the end of July through to the end of August. For Swale, this means that we are expecting to open Milton Court Children’s Centre by the end of July. Following this, further centres will be reopened and we will update you on those soon. Over the Summer, our Open Access staff will be delivering a Summer programme of activities as part of Kent’s Reconnect Programme. You can find out more about the programme via Look out for further updates on where this programme is delivering activities near you via Kent County Council ⭐️⭐️⭐️


Murston Children's Centre is now open in Swale District, but please be advised that there are currently no groups running from the Centre.


Please contact 03000 420 896 for any further enquiries on Children's Centre services.
