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.

Covid-19 Update: all Bright Start activities have been risk assessed to ensure they comply with government guidelines.

Find out what's going on for families with under 5s in your area and online, on your local Bright Start timetable: Bright Start North, Bright Start Central, Bright Start South.

You can find more information about family support on our directory website.

If you have a question, need some information, advice or guidance our family engagement workers are still here to talk over the phone. To use Bright Start services you will need to register. You can register using the electronic form or you can download the form

 Bright Start is part of a wider partnership aimed at improving residents lives and as part of that ongoing work, we’re making some changes to the Bright Start areas from January 2021. There will be no changes to our services and you will continue to see the same staff members as well as meeting some new faces. The new areas will be called North, Central and South. Use the local area finder on Islington's website. 

Happy 3rd Birthday Bright Start!
