The Chorleywood & Loudwater Children’s Centre moved into their premises at Chorleywood Library at the start of August, having already established outreach activities at Loudwater Farm and Bullsland Hall.

The Children's Centre will provide information and services for families with young children and aim to build on good existing services rather than starting new ones where it’s not necessary. Children’s Centres are being developed so that children under five and their families can benefit from a range of flexible services and support when they need it and in a convenient location, maybe at several centres within the local area.

Families may need to know about antenatal and post natal care, breastfeeding support, parent and toddler groups, child minders, pre-schools and other early year’s settings. You may have worries about your child’s sleeping patterns, feeding and behaviour problems. There will be services or activities supporting you in the everyday challenges that parents face in bringing up young children. The Children’s Centre should be a one-stop shop for information and support.

Further information about all the Children's Centres in Hertfordshire is available here.

The centre will be officially launched on Saturday 11th September from 10 am to 12 noon, with children’s activities from 10 am and the official opening facilitated by Jane Pitman, Lead Member for Children’s Services, Hertfordshire County Council at 11am. The proceedings concluding with light refreshments.

The Chorleywood & Loudwater Children’s Centre works in partnership with other organisations and professionals to support families, including:
  • Health professionals, especially local Health Visitors
  • Local schools, pre-schools and nurseries
  • The Extended School Consortium
  • Hertfordshire County Council, Three Rivers District Council and the Parish Council
  • JobCentre Plus
  • Library staff
  • Bookstart
  • The National Childminding Association
  • Police, especially local PCSOs
  • Voluntary agencies, including HomeStart
The Residents' Association looks forward to working with Sandra and the rest of the team at the Children's Centre for the benefit of Chorleywood.
