Mossfield and Moorside Sure Start Children's Centre

Mossfield community art project

Mossfield Children's Centre transferred all it's services to different community venues on 1 April 2014. The building is needed so the school can expand due to increasing numbers of children. The services have already begun to take place in community venues, particularly in the Clifton area.

This is before the move to the planned new Gateway building in the centre of Swinton later this year.

Services will not be affected and all staff will be located at Moorside Children's Centre, Wenlock Street, off Moorside Road, Swinton.
