Most of the children's centres in Norfolk look set to be closed under plans being put forward by the county council.
If approved, only seven of the 53 centres would remain when the new contracts starts in September 2019.
More than 20,000 parents and children under five currently use the centres.
The council says it wants to spend its resources on frontline services rather than buildings. Earlier this year councillors agreed to reduce the annual budget for children's centres from £10 million to £5 million.
“We want to get the right help to children and families as early as possible and create services that are fit for today’s families.
“About a quarter of those families who live in areas of greatest need are not accessing children’s centre services at the moment and we want to develop a service that gives them the support and help they need for their children.
