NCT Enfield (National Childbirth Trust)
The First 1,000 Days of being a parent are now accepted to be the most significant in a child’s development. Leading child health experts worldwide agree that care given during the First 1,000 Days has more influence on a child’s future than any other time in their life.
Ask most parents, and chances are they’ll say that the First 1,000 Days also present some of the most challenging moments in a person’s life. And, with each new baby comes a whole new set of priorities, dilemmas and challenges.
At NCT, we have long believed that the First 1,000 Days matter. For more than 56 years we have delivered a trusted service to parents.

Primary School Catchment
Primary School Catchment is a free online resource for parents, providing information on applying for primary school, starting school and school life. It was set up by two Palmers Green parents after their own experience of navigating the daunting admissions process. Parents can use the map search to check the catchment areas of local schools, as well as reading articles about things like how to apply, key dates, appeals, and preparing your child for starting school.
