COVID-19 UPDATE 28.1.21

We are currently unable to run face to face sessions. We are very sad about this but hope to be able to offer something outdoors after the Easter holidays. We are meeting online for a weekly catch up and can offer one to one phone support if necessary.

We continue to run our Growbaby service. All session times and activities are detailed in our 'what we do' section and across our social media platforms.

Please sign up to our email list to receive up to date information about our sessions and services.

A mum and three small children play in a large tray of sand in a fenced off playground. They are using colourful buckets and spades to scoop the sand and make sandcastles.


The Ivy Street Family Centre is a little oasis of warmth and fun in the heart of Hoxton. We provide welcoming and relaxing spaces for children and their carers where everyone can makes friends. We welcome mums, dads, childminders, nannies, grandparents and anyone else looking after under fives.

“I love this place, its always so welcoming. My child loves it here and I’ve made some life long friends.”

Head and shoulders shot of Angela, she is side on to the camera but looking straight out of the picture, she has a wide open mouth as if laughing or telling a joke. She has a cartoon cat's nose and whiskers superimposed on her nose.


Helping new mums give their babies the best start.


We’ve been in Hoxton for 40 years.
