What is a Sure Start Children’s Centre?
The aim of Sure Start Children’s Centers is to support children under five and their families. Children’s Centres are at the heart of the Government’s ‘Every Child Matters’ agenda which aims to get local services working more closely together to be able to better support families. The Centres have a central role in improving outcomes for all young children. From pregnancy through to primary school, Sure Start Children’s Centres in Surrey are here to support you access a range of services all in one place.

Can I leave my child there?
Unfortunately, we do not provide childcare at ‘The Poplars’. All our sessions are for children who are accompanied by their parents or carers and the children remain their responsibility whilst on the premises. However, occasionally a course may be offered with a crèche facility provided. These details will be given at the time the course is advertised. A full list of local childcare provision can be found by contacting the Surrey Family Information Service on 0300 2001004
How much does it cost?
At the moment all sessions at ‘The Poplars’ are free of charge
Can I bring older children?
Generally our sessions are aimed at children under 5 years as our equipment and resources are geared to this age group. Sometimes we may open the sessions up to older children and this will be advertised on our ‘whats on’ page and at the centre.
