Welcome to the Duckling Green Children's Centre website.
On Monday 3rd August 2015 Duckling Green Children's Centre will be moving premises.
"Windhill21, the Lead Agency for SV&VCCG (Stort Valley & Villages Children's Centre Group) is delighted to announce that Duckling Green Children's Centre will be moving to the Sawbridgeworth Library (The Forebury, Sawbridgeworth, CM21 9BD) on 3rd August 2015 - where families and partner agencies can continue to access advice, guidance and support from their Children's Centre teams. We will be sharing the premises with the Library Service but will have sole use of the building Tuesdays 9.00 am - 5.00 pm, Thursdays 9.00 am - 1.30 pm and Fridays 9.00 am - 1.30 pm. Children's Centre Staff will be available in the Library from 9.00 am Tuesday 4th August and the interim telephone number will be 07555 560150.
Services and activities will continue to run within the Town and the surrounding villages, but there will be a much bigger emphasis on using community venues - something we all believe is a really positive step forward. All health visiting and community midwife services that were delivered from 2b The Square, will continue to do so, and the Children's Centre team will continue to be a part of these services.
A new activity programme will be available shortly - if you are a registered family and we have your email address, please look out for our email soon. There will also be information available on both websites and facebook pages (see details below). We would like to once again remind families that they will be able to access any part of the programme from anywhere across the whole Group.
We would like to thank the Hertfordshire Library Service for this opportunity to work in partnership and we are pleased that we are able to maintain a healthy presence in the Town.
We look forward to seeing you at an activity soon."
If you would like to speak to a member of Children's Centre staff outside of these hours, please telephone Stort Valley & Villages Children's Centre Group on 01279 696853 or 01279 508759.
