"Contact with my child"

About: Retford Central Children's Centre

(as a parent/guardian),

So I have been using the Retford central children's centre for a few months now as I'm in proceedings for child contact arrangements. The centre has been a rock for me as where going through this, helping out with handovers etc. The staff there have remained mutrual and very professional and child focused and are all very friendly and welcoming. Over the school holidays the centre remaind open for me to use and my oldest child of 13 to have time with my youngest child there in the play room, I can't even put into words how greatful I was for this and how this kept the bond and contact still there for my family, this had a massive positive impact on not just myself but two children of 15 month and 13 years old who was able to spend quialty time together. I can not thank the centre enough. I find the place clean tidy and plenty to do for the children and the activities they plan are great for kids and parents to interact. Thanks for everything to all the staff there
