Family Support

We are the Family Support Team at Canterbury Nursery School.  We will be on the gates most mornings and around at school pick up time too.

You may be feeling worried about how the world is changing around us. Often sharing how you feel can be a big help. Charlotte has a counselling qualification and is a Mental Health First Aider and the whole team have lots of experience in supporting families. Here are some of things our team can help out with;

  • Wellbeing conversations/Door step visits/Texts
  • Walk –Talk –Play session a walking group for parents or carers with an activity provided for young children not yet in nursery. 
  • Parenting support around routines and behaviours
  • Healthy Eating advice
  • Mental Health wellbeing
  • Support in registering for Doctors/Dentists
  • School Admissions


If it’s something that we cannot help with we will try to signpost you to another service that might be able to help. Such as;

  • Parenting Advice – Family Links/Incredible Years. Some of aspects of parenting I will be able to support with but if you would like to attend the Family Links programme I can make a referral.
  • Henry – Health Exercise Nutrition for the Really Young
  • Debt and Benefits – I can support you to access support in this area.
  • Food Parcels – We are a registered referrer and can help you to access this service. We often have a small store of food in supply if you have a short term crisis. i.e. your fridge/freezer has broken.
  • Housing – we have good links with different housing associations and will be able to offer you telephone numbers to assist you.
  • Early Help Referral - Early Help is the term used to describe arrangements and services that respond to the needs of children, young people and their families as soon as problems start.

If you feel that texting might suit you better. Drop us a text on – 07851-458-502.

*Texts will only be answered during nursery opening hours*
