The Children’s Centre is not running any drop-in or face-to-face services. 

The Nursery School is open today for priority children. If you are a key worker and have recently been informed that your childcare provider in Newham has closed, please contact Kirsty.reed@newham.gov.uk to share your urgent childcare requirements.

If you are struggling to get the food you need, or essential supplies like nappies, please call us on 020 8553 2479. We will do what we can to help you.

What should you do if you are worried about a child?

  • 020 8430 2000 at any other time.

Whether you want to report child abuse and neglect or aren’t sure what to do, we’re here to listen, offer advice and support. We can take the next steps if a child’s in danger.

You can also phone a Designated Safeguarding Lead at Sheringham between 8.30am and 4.30pm, Monday to Friday.

Manor Park Community Children’s Centre is led by Sheringham Nursery School. Our quarterly calendar of services from January to the end of March 2020 is available here [PDF] or you can drop into the Centre and pick one up from our reception area.

We cover the whole Manor Park Community Neighbourhood and we have services based across the area. We have a map of the neighbourhood with all our partners and you can see the dates and locations of our services in our calendar, which you can pick up from our reception or download from our list of links on the left hand side of this page.

Sheringham Children’s Centre

We are here to help every child get a good start in life. We are a year-round, one-stop shop for a wide range of services that support parents, expectant parents, and children in the Foundation Years (from birth to five years old). Our brand-new building and outdoor play area mean that we can offer the very best modern facilities.

We work very closely with NHS services like health visiting, speech and language therapy and nutrition. We recommend that parents with smartphones and tablets download the Newham Child Health App. You can use this free app to help you know what to do when your baby/child is ill. Learn how to care for your child at home, when to seek advice from a health visitor/call a doctor and when to contact emergency services. It’s available on iTunes for iPhones and iPads, and on Google Play for Android phones and tablets.

Our 2012 Inspection report from Ofsted states that “Sheringham is a good children’s centre that meets the needs of local families well. The staff are very committed to promoting the good well-being of families, and the support and guidance they provide are much appreciated by users of the centre and have a positive impact on improving their lives.”
