Opening of Ilminster Avenue Specialist Children's Centre



Dawn Primarolo cut the ribbon to officially open Ilminster Avenue Specialist Children’s Centre this morning.  The new centre will bring together childcare and health services under one roof.  The nursery at Ilminster Avenue had already been giving children the very best start in life, and was rated as Outstanding by Ofsted.

Dawn was joined by Headteacher Pat Rogers, staff , parents and children to celebrate the opening.  Afterwards she said:

“Bringing together childcare and health services makes sense, and this will be a brilliant facility for people in Knowle West.  Pat Rogers and her dedicated staff have worked so hard to get this project off the ground, and I know it will make a real difference to parents and children.  The centre is equipped with a hydrotherapy pool and sensory room, and benefits from a large open space.  It will really benefit children with severe and complex learning difficulties and having services located together means an end to parents regularly travelling across the city for appointments for their children.”
