Jersey’s first school-linked child and family centre is in the grounds of Samarès primary school. It aims to support families with young children in the heart of the community where they are easily accessible.
Pathways is a joint project between Children, Young People, Education and Skills (CYPES), Health and Social Services and Family Nursing & Home Care. The centre will work in partnership with families to provide services which they find valuable including:
·Health visitors and community nursery nurses
·Child health clinics
·Parenting support groups
·Pop-in and play groups (Baby Grow group for mums and babies up to 1 year, Toddle Together for 1 to 2 years old, 2’s to 3’s and Drop In for 0 to 4 years old)
This service is supported by a dedicated mental health practitioner, in conjunction with maintaining well-being.
