Our Target Priorities for Hemel West

  1. Increase antenatal provision and ensure that antenatal families are directed to appropriate signposting, services and support.
  2. Promote services for expectant parents and families with children under one, to ensure that they have a healthy start.
  3. Encourage more parents to get involved in making decisions about the Centre’s development and volunteering within the Centre and wider community.

  • Free childcare for your two year old

    Spike-logoHertfordshire County Council (HCC) have been working together to increase the take up of free early education for two year olds. One of the aims of the group was to have a new visual identity for the two year old scheme. The overwhelming choice was for a dinosaur, known as “Spike” within the team.

    Could you be entitled to get free early education and childcare for you 3 and 4 year old?

    Did you know that:

    All 3 and 4 year olds can get 15 hours free early education (570 hours per year). This can be used with a school, childminder, day nursery, pre-school. In some cases, 3 and 4 year olds can get an extra 15 hours childcare (570 hours a year). This will depend on your circumstances.
    The following links both provide eligibility checkers. You are just a click away from finding out what support is on offer to you:
  • Volunteers survey

It will take about 2 minutes of your time to complete and we will use the feedback to continue to build our service.
