We visited the First Place Children’s Centre on the edge of Burgess Park today to talk to families and carers who were visiting the centre and using some of their services.

We met parents who were engaged in the centres parenting courses and receiving free osteopathy for their children. We also met a lot of dads as they dropped off and picked up their children from the nursery. We noticed very quickly the high degree of trust that parents had in us, and the openness they showed in sharing their experiences. This was in part due to the trust they have in the centre and the level of security and comfort that people feel as soon as they walk through the door.
