Welcome to Stevenage North Group of Children’s Centres!


St Nicholas and Martins Wood and Strawberry Fields Children’s Centre will be closed all day on Monday 24th October as staff will be sorting resources for the day. Bridge Road Children’s Centre will be open in the afternoon on Monday from 12.30pm-4pm. All 3 centres will be open as usual for the remainder of next week from Tuesday onwards (see our opening times for further information)



Stevenage North Group of Children's Centres is made up of Bridge Road, St Nicholas and Martins Wood and Strawberry Fields Children's Centres.

We work closely with our local health team, pre-schools, day nurseries, schools, toddler groups and childminders and many other people who are involved with families who have children aged 0–4.

We also run activities such as toy library and play events – just take a look at our What’s On page to find out more.

Healthy Start Vitamins

HS-VitaminsThese are now available from your local children’s centre and are now free to all women who are pregnant or breastfeeding and all babies aged from 6 months up to 4 years old (children who are having 500ml or more of formula a day do not need the vitamins) – please ask any member of children’s centre staff.

Safeguarding children is everyone's responsibility

Children have a right to be cared for and protected and protecting them is everyone’s responsibility. If you know of a child who is being neglected or abused – it’s simple – report it now to Children, Schools and Families on 0300 123 4043.

For more information on any safeguarding issues visit the Herts Safeguarding Children Board’s website.
