Children's Services

Valley House is a designated Sure Start Children’s Centre which provides a whole range of activities to support children aged 0-5 and their families.

Every Children's Centre covers a different area of Coventry, and ours stretches from Courthouse Green up to Little Heath, Longford and Foleshill. 

It does not matter if you live in a different area - if you want to come to Valley House, you will be made very welcome.

Activity Groups for Parents and Children

We offer a wide variety of exciting groups for children and parents. These include:

Stay and Play

These sessions provide all your child’s favourite activities including sand, water, outdoor play, dressing up, and craft activities! They also include story and song time. See our timetable.

Family Support

At Valley House we know that bringing up children is never easy.  Trained and experienced staff can support you with all the challenges you may face as a parent. We can visit you in your home or you can come to Valley House.

We can offer you advice and information about anything from pregnancy to toddler tantrums, accessing childcare, dealing with difficult behaviour, sleep routines and going to school.  If we can’t help you, we have contacts with lots of different specialist agencies that we can signpost you to.

Parenting Programmes

We offer a range of support for parents to learn more about their child's development and behaviour. You can have one-to-one sessions, or you can join a group of other parents to share experiences and learn together with an experienced parenting advisor.

Contact Michelle Collins for more details.


Portage is a home programme for children with developmental delay and their parents. Talk to your health visitor for more information or contact the team at Limbrick Wood on 024 7669 4736.
