Approval to consult on the de-designation a small number of Children’s Centres. There are a total of 5 buildings. Statutory guidance from the Department for Education means that recipients must have regard to it when carrying out duties relating to children’s centres under the Childcare Act 2006. Any building currently registered as a designated children’s centres will need to be de-registered with the DfE following the de-registration guidance. The guidance recommends consultation with stakeholders prior to any change. Although all these centres have been closed since the pandemic and not re-opened there remains the need to follow the Statutory guidance.
