The Ark Children's Centre


Here at The Ark Children's Centre we offer FREE fun activities for you and your children to play, learn and have fun together, Stay & Plays, Interactive Music Groups, Active Movement Classes, New Parent Groups and loads more.

We host a weekly Child Health Clinic, where you will have the opportunity to speak to a Health Visitor, along with Breast Feeding Support and Midwife Appointments.

We have a wide range of Adult Education courses available across the District.

Our Children's Centre is part of a nationwide programme of services for 0-5 year olds and their families. Our aim is to offer information, advice, parental outreach and support to parents, along with free, fun activities - making a difference for families and their children.  There are 6 Children’s Centres within the District (Little Forest, Southborough, The Ark, Harmony, Paddock Wood and Cranbrook).

Please have a look at our Timetable, we hope to see you soon.
