About Village Sure Start Children's Centre

We offer FLEXIBLE day care five days a week 8.00 a.m. - 6.00 p.m. for children aged 0-4 years old. We have three main day care rooms and an interactive sensory room that is used by all the children at the Centre.  We also facilitate The Programme for Two Year Olds five mornings a week in our sensory room.

We are registered by the Belfast Trust and are inspected on an annual basis when they have access to all of our records and procedures. Registration is a legal requirement and the Belfast Trust ensures that our practice standards are maintained. We are insured with the Markel International Insurance Company. You will find a copy of our registration Certificate and our insurance policy displayed in the front hall.

We offer flexible day care to meet your working requirements.  This means that we can look after your child for five full days a week or for only one full day if that is all you require.  We accept child care vouchers and child care tax credits that can help with the cost of the fees.  There is an advice worker in the building that can give support to you regarding the tax credit system.  We also provide child care for those who are still at school, at college or university.  If you are in state education then your child care place is likely to be funded by the Education Authority.  Please see the following links for more information on this https://www.nidirect.gov.uk/articles/extra-help-students-children and https://www.studentfinanceni.co.uk/types-of-finance/undergraduate/full-time/northern-ireland-student/extra-help/childcare-grant/what-is-it/ If you are with other training bodies then check with them to see if all or some of your child care will be funded by them.

It is important to us that all the children in our care feel safe and secure in the absence of their parents/carers.  We work in close partnership with you through the settling in process to ensure that this is achieved. There is no charge for the days and hours involved in settling your child at the Centre.  We acknowledge that as the parent you know your child the best and we will want to find out all about them from you.  We in turn will let you know what their day has been like when you pick them up from us.
