GroW exists as a response to the closure of the Childrens Centres in 2017. The community came together and set up the GroW community group to ensure families in our community continued to be supported. We support for families with babies and toddlers under 5 years old across the OX12 postcode area. We support parents and carers in their social, emotional and mental wellbeing. Through play, stories, singing and group activities, we support the physical, emotional, social and educational development of children under 5 years old.
