Welcome to the St Francis Youth and Community website.

St Francis Youth and Community Centre has been a focal point within the community since 1975 with over 1,000 people accessing our services each week.

We are situated on Sycamore Road in the heart of the Bournville village. The Centre is open to all members of the community and offers a wide range of activities for the local people and groups to access. These include a pre-school, leisure classes, out of school club, a luncheon club and a youth project


Hopscotch Pre-School for 2-5 year olds is open Monday - Friday (term time) from 9.30 a.m.-2.30 p.m. (2 sessions morning and afternoon). It operates from the main hall at St Francis Youth and Community Centre.childplaying

The pre-school is registered for nursery education funding and is Ofsted registered. It aims to provide a stimulating environment of play and learning where children's happiness and welfare are priority. 

The manager, Melanie Gardner, leads a committed team who are enthusiastic, caring and professional in their practice. All staff hold appropriate early years qualifications.
