Enabling children to achieve their potential

1st Place was founded in 2003, born from the vision of local children and parents as part of the Aylesbury Sure Start programme.

We are proud that long-lasting, supportive relationships with our families and their children still lie at the heart of what we do. Many parents continue to support us even when they have moved out of the area, and many of our staff began their links with 1st Place as parents.
