About our Centre

Hertford Selections Children's Centre.

Hertford Selections Children's Cente is situated adjacent to The Sele School on Welwyn Road Hertford.

Opening Times 9.00 - 4.30 Monday to Friday (appointments can be made outside of these hours please telephone)

Our Children's Centre serves the local community and those families living in Bayford, Bengeo, Hertford (SG14), Hertingfordbury, Little Berkhampsted, Sele, Tewin, and all the Village Greens from Staines Green down to Epping Green.

It is hoped that Children’s Centres will become the first, local port of call for all families with young children, from the first antenatal visits, through being a new parent, for general advice or support on issues affecting their child’s health, development or care, or information about the challenges parents face every day in bringing up their children in the crucial early years. We can also provide information on where to find local parent and toddler groups, daycare provision and preschools, together with internet access to help with school applications.

Governance - Our Children's Centre has an Advisory Board who are responsible for overseeing the delivery of the centre Aims through the varied programme of activities delivered both on site and in the community. We have representation from our Health and Jobcentre Plus colleagues. There is a Governance notice board in the main hall and here you can find our latest Action Plan and details of the meeting dates. Parents are encouraged to join us at these meetings and we would welcome your input as a representative of the group you attend or as an individual.

Much of what is offered at the centre compliments but not duplicates what is on offer in the local community however please remember that during the holiday periods the centre may have additional activities to offer something for families when other toddler groups and community groups tend to close.

Where appropriate some services can be taken out into communities or local schools to support all families to have equal access. If you think you live in an area where there are limited or no services for 0 - 4's please contact us.

We also wish to support parents back into training and employment and will be working with partners at Jobcentre Plus, and other agencies who can help families achieve their aspirations.

We look forward to welcoming you to Hertford Selections Children's Centre.
