Sure Start survey under way

(January 22, 2009)
PARENTS  of children who attend the Avenue School's 'Sure Start' classes in Warminster are being invited to take part in a survey about their experiences, writes Paul Macdonald.

The consultation about the way the under fives are eased into education has been launnched by the county council.
The centre  is one of 22 across the county and is open from 8am until 6pm for 50 weeks of the year.
It serves  Warminster and neighbouring villages and aims to provide a learning and stimulating environment to children with the aim of developing their personalities.
Parents who have children at the early learning centre have told how pleased they are with the classes.
They have described their children being 'excited and enthusiastic' at the thought of going there. The staff have been described as 'helpful' and the school as 'very welcoming'.
"This survey will help us discover how we can improve and add to the services our children's centres provide,"  said Gill Hanlan from county hall.
 The centre is not just aimed at the youngsters but at providing support for parents at the same time.

The survey is available online at  until the end of February.

Copies that can be filled in by hand will be available through children's centres and from Russell Martin from Wiltshire County Council's early years and childcare team, on [email protected]
Anyone involved with the centre not on the internet can ring 01225 785660.
