The object of Centrepoint is to promote the welfare of children in Jersey by providing child-first, leading quality child care in nurturing environments within our nurseries, play care and special needs centres. At Centrepoint we provide the absolute best possible start for our island’s children supporting their emotional, physical and mental development through exploration, learning and fun.
Centrepoint operates at the highest professional standards expected of an organisation of this stature. We rely on fees payable by parents in order to finance our operations but we provide financial support to parents/carers of children who would otherwise be unable to access a nursery or play care setting. This can include either full or partial fee remission. This support also includes subsidised rates and flexible hours for children of keyworkers who work shifts as a typical part of their job.
We allocate 10 fully subsidised play care spaces (term-time), 10 fully subsidised play care holiday spaces (full-time) and 6 fully subsidised nursery spaces (3 per setting) to enable us to provide this support.
In that way, we are committed not only to expanding the services we offer to the public but also to playing even more of a key role in supporting children and families within the community whose need is greatest. We seek always to ensure that those parents who pay full fees for services understand the nature and importance of this commitment. This includes the development of an Emergency Care Provision with a view to caring for the children of parents and/or the siblings of children who have experienced some adversity or setback which has resulted in them requiring immediate, short term, child care. We also provide heavily subsidised medium term and long term child care where it is felt that the welfare and the emotional and/or physical wellbeing of the child is at risk.
We offer a supported breakfast, after school, Weekend and Holiday Club for children with complex/special needs who are unable to access mainstream clubs. We currently have over 80 children actively attending the clubs, and we have provided care for over 120 children to date. We wrk alongside and supporting other organisations who also specialise in the care of children with complex/special needs.
We aim to keep the fees that we charge for our child care as low as possible, but at a level which ensures, first, that we can continue to deliver exceptional child care with highly qualified, experienced and committed staff within excellent facilities, and secondly, meet our charitable objects by apportioning some of the revenue received from fees, along with proceeds from specific fundraising activities.
