Dorking Nursery School and Children’s Centre is located on two sites, one in the town centre of Dorking, on West Street and the other on Goodwyns Road.
In August 2007, our long established and highly successful maintained nursery school was designated as a sure start children’s centre and renamed as Dorking Nursery School and Children’s Centre. In January 2010, a new building, in Goodwyns Road became part of the Children’s Centre and in April 2011 the two areas became one Children’s Centre.
Dorking Nursery School (Local Authority maintained) has an excellent reputation for providing high quality education and care for a total of 70 children and has specialist provision (special needs support centre and pre-school speech language and communication centre) for 18 children. The 2-3s nursery (non-maintained) has adopted the same principles and ethos, catering for a maximum of 24 children in any session. These are both based on the West Street site.
The Children’s Centre is based across both sites and provides a wide range of activities, services, information and advice, including outreach and home visiting.
Staff are like a second family.”
