      Elstead & Villages Sure Start

Childrens’s Centre

To all Parents and Partners.


I am sure you are all aware that following the consultation over Christmas a decision was taken by Surrey to change the Sure Start Children's centre offer to a Family Centre model across the whole of the county. The planned restructure will mean that some centres will close and others will be incorporated into the new offer.

You may also be aware that Elstead and Villages Children's Centre is one of those to be closed but you can be assured that all of our families receiving Outreach assistance will continue to be supported throughout the changes with a smooth transition to a new Family Centre.

The Surrey County Council - Family Information Service website has further information regarding the closures of centres, new centres and the services they will offer.

Prior to all the significant changes we thought we would let you know what we will be offering you over the next few weeks.

All timetabled sessions will continue at the Children’s Centre from now until the start of the summer holidays.

A separate timetable will be available for the Summer holiday until the week ending 16th August, when the Universal services will cease.  Universal services are all the Play and Learn sessions and baby groups.

Any sessions and courses for September will be published on our website nearer the start of term.

 It is envisaged that the new Family Centres will be ready to start delivering services at the same time as the Children’s Centres close, and will be fully operational by mid-November.

There will be two Family Centres in Waverley:  one will be at Hale, Farnham and the other at Loseley Fields, Godalming.

Thank you to all parents and partners for your support to the Children’s Centre over the last 9 years,


From the Children’s Centre team at Elstead and the Villages Children’s Centre
