Summer Holiday Timetable 2014

Please find our summer holiday timetable here for Little Hands and Feet Children?s Centre!? The timetable starts from the 28th July and normal sessions will be running until then.

We are doing some different activities out and about over the Summer so have a look at the dates and venues. These activities will be instead of our regular groups ‘Pop in and Play’, ‘Busy Boys’ and ‘Terrific Twos’. ‘Bumps to Cruisers’ will continue to run through the summer holidays.

Activities will run rain or shine so please bring wellies, raincoats, sunhats, sun cream etc!

Older siblings are welcome to events during the holidays, however the activities are focused towards children under 5.

Please note there won’t be any groups running on the first week of September.

We will return to our usual time table on the 8th September.

Children’s Centre Consultation Meeting

Also if you would like to have your say about the future plans for Children’s Centres in Hertfordshire you could join us for a ‘Parent’s Voice’ meeting on 9th July at 12.00-1.00 at the Children’s Centre.? Click here for the flyer.? You can also have your say by following this link: Children’s Centre consultation.

The main points of the proposal are:

  • To keep all 82 Children?s Centres in Hertfordshire
  • To group the Children?s Centres together
  • To increase the integration between services delivered through Children?s Centres and those delivered by local health teams and schools.

The ‘Parent’s Voice’ meeting (previously known as ‘Parent’s Forum’) will also be a chance to have you say on the plans for our September timetable.

We will be having a picnic for the children so please let me know if you are coming so I can make sure there is enough food!

Kind Regards,

Rachael Leonard, Deputy Centre Manager
