Welcome to the Duckling Green Children's Centre website.
We hope you will find it infomative and interesting.
Stort Valley and Villages Children's Centre Group - Activity Programme April - July 2015
'After a consultation throughout Hertfordshire in 2014, following by a re-commissioning process, it is pleasing to announce that from 1st April 2015, your local Children's Centres will become part of a larger group that will be known as the Stort Valley and Villages Children's Centre Group. This new Group will include the Windhill, Buttercups and Little Squirrels Children's Centres in the original Bishop's Stortford and Villages Network and also Duckling Green Children's Centre which serves the Sawbridgeworth and Villages area.
This will make no difference to how you currently access your Children's Centre services, in fact you will now also have the option of attending a larger selection of sessions across a much wider area. Until September 2015 however, there will continue to be programmes operating from each area - after that we are planning to develop a single programme that covers the whole area.
You will notice that although we have aligned the start and end of the activity programme dates, the booking windows will be slightly difference so do please check your existing programme for this information.
In the meantime the telephone numbers for each of the four Children's Centres will remain the same, as will the website details. If you have any questions at all, do feel free to get in touch, as staff will be pleased to help with your enquiry.'

Duckling Green Children’s Centre was officially designated by the Government on the 25th August 2009 as a Sure Start Children’s Centre. The Children's Centre is part of Windhill21 who are our lead agency.
Sure Start Children's Centres are a central hub of information where children aged 0 - 5 years and their families can gain access to relevant services and information. Its aim is to give children the best possible start in life.
A Children's Centre is a one stop shop offering access to information and services for children under 5 years and their families.
It is a collective network of services within the community offering:
- Childcare information
- Expert advice and Health Care
- Family fun and meeting people
- Links to training and job opportunities
- Parenting and family support
We opened our doors to local families in February 2010. There is a full and varied timetable of activities currently available.
Duckling Green Children's Centre is open Monday to Friday 9.00am – 5.00pm and can be contacted on 01279 601900.
