There is NO Stretch 'n' Grow on Monday 25 July at Pinehurst Community Centre.

During the past year Children's Centres have been going through a recommissioning process and Hertfordshire County Council announced One YMCA will be providing a new Family Centre Service across East Hertfordshire as from 1st Oct 2018.

Hertfordshire County Council is fully committed to continued delivery of these highly valued and effective services and has awarded the Family Centre Service contracts for a six year term, allowing the service to develop and deliver services across Hertfordshire that support children, young people and their families to achieve their full potential.

The new Family Centre Service will deliver an accessible, county-wide service to families, delivered as flexibly and locally as possible, allowing families to access services from one place as much as possible. Family Centres in Hertfordshire will be open to all families with children whilst still offering additional support to those in greatest need.

The service will be operational by autumn 2018.

Hertford & Villages Children's Centre Group is based in the East quadrant.

We hope you will find information on a wide range of topics for our three Children's Centres.  Please let us know if you are unable to find what you are looking for.
