Consultation on the future of children’s centres, health visiting and school nursing services in Hertfordshire opens on Monday 17 July 2017 and closes on Wednesday 20 September.
We would like to encourage families and partners to respond to the consultation which is available at www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/familycentreconsultation.

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 respond to the survey to share your views.


Please note that the telephone number required to book all activities is : 07746 560577


From January 2017 there will be no Monday Well Child Clinics at Applecroft Children’s Centre.  This is a change to the published programme.  Families are welcome to attend clinic at Tenterfield on Tuesday afternoon 2 – 3.30 pm.
