Dear Parent,


Thank you for sending in a registration request. Unfortunately you live outside our catchment area so we are unable to register you at this time. No other Sure Start currently covers your address so I have included a list of local Parent and Toddler groups you can attend as well as a list of contact info for local support services.


We run a breastfeeding support group in Monkstown Village Centre every Monday (except bank holidays) from 10-11.30am. This group is open to all breastfeeding mums and mums to be. This is the only group we run that can be attended by everyone, whether you live in our catchment area or not.

Come along, bring the children, meet new mum friends and discuss any issues or concerns with our Health Visitor Lorraine. You do not need to book, you can come along whenever you choose and children aged 0-4 are welcome too (please double check with the office on 02890860938 or to ensure the programme is running).


Apologies for any disappointment caused in not being able to register with us, but we hope the information enclosed is helpful.


Many thanks,
