West Smethwick Enterprise Family Centre – Putting children, young people and families first

West Smethwick Enterprise Family Centre is a charity which was set up in 1984.  We are a community based organisation with an aim to improve outcomes for children and families.  Our services are inclusive to all and we are committed to supporting children and families within the local community. We currently offer Pre-School facilities for children aged between 2-5, family support services for children and their families within the local community, stay and play sessions for families and children and a supported child contact centre.

Our vision

“if you treat a person as they are, they will remain as they are, but if you treat a person as they could be, they will become who they could be”

All children and young people growing up in Smethwick deserve the best possible start in life and to have a wide range of opportunities to grow and develop into healthy, safe and happy individuals.  Families play a central role in nurturing children to be safe, self-confident and happy children. 

Our Pre-School services offer great opportunities for children to access early years education and fun activities with fully qualified staff including early years teacher status. We offer 2, 3 and 4-year-old free 15 or 30 hour funded places for eligible children and also paid places for those not eligible for free places.

We also offer free stay and play sessions, that take place on a Tuesday and Friday 10am-11.30am for all children and families to attend. These sessions support the children’s development and encourage their social skills before they begin a pre-school setting.

Our family support team consists of Family Support Workers and Children’s Development Workers. They provide a wide range of support from housing and benefits to support for children’s behaviour and boundaries within a setting or the home environment. We also offer various courses and programmes that support parents cooking skills, mathematical and literacy skills and support parents on a wide range of topics.

We offer Student / Volunteering Opportunities – for more information contact 0121 558 6796

Our opening times are 8.00am- 3.00pm Monday – Friday (contact centre hours vary and include Saturdays)
