Bright Start Islington: Under 5s and Children’s Centres 

Bright Start Islington is our name for services for under fives and their families run in children’s centres, nurseries, health centres, community centres and libraries across Islington. We support families from pregnancy to a child’s fifth birthday.


Bright Start venues are places you can meet other parents, support each other, and get involved in improving what Bright Start offers.

You must register to visit a Bright Start venue. You can download the registration form from the bottom of this page. Once you are registered, you can use any children’s centre or local venue where Bright Start activities are offered.

You can find local activities on the Bright Start timetables for East, West and South Islington, and remember you can visit any venue at any time.
