Welcome to Welwyn & Knebworth Children’s Centre Group

In autumn 2018, the county council’s contracts for children’s centre, health visiting and school nursing services are due to finish. This means that they need to design how the service will work from 2018. Children’s centres, health visiting and school nursing services already work closely together, but the county council believe that they can still make improvements to fulfil the ambition for children and young people to be happy, healthy, safe, resilient, ambitious and independent.

Please find details under our Parents Information tab about a session aimed at those working or who would like to work in childcare. This session is free and will take place on November 1st.

The Autumn Half Term timetable is now available for you to see either here on the website or hard copies are available at each centre.


Please note that the telephone number required to book all activities is : 07746 560577 and the email address is: ccbookings@tenterfield.herts.sch.uk
