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

Bright Start Islington is our new name for services for under fives and their families, that we 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.


As well as childcare and early education, Bright Start Islington provides activities and services including:

Bright Start venues are places you can meet other parents, support each other, and you can make your voice heard by getting involved in designing and reviewing local services.

You can find local activities on the Bright Start timetables for East, West and South Islington.

How to register 

Visit your local children’s centre and fill in a registration form. Once you are registered, you can use any children’s centre or local venue where Bright Start activities are being provided.
