Best Start Bedford

Best Start Bedford is a website offering information and support for expectant parents and families with babies and children up to the age of 5 years.

Bedford Borough Council worked in partnership with parents and Early Years professionals to include useful information about health services, education, childcare choices and local activities.

We hope you find the support you need for you and your young children through Best Start Bedford.

If you run an Early Years group and would like your information linked or if you are a parent or carer and think there is another service we need to add please email

Best Start Bedford has been created as part of our Family Hubs and Start for Life offer. Our Family Hubs aim to give all children, young people aged 0-19 (25 with SEND) and their families the best support and start to life that we can. All families need support from time to time to help their babies and children thrive, whether that’s from friends, family, volunteers, or practitioners. Our ambition is for every family to receive the support they need, when they need it.
