Children's Centre

Our Children’s Centre is located on two sites, one in the town centre of Dorking, on West Street and the other on Goodwyns Road. Our Children’s Centre was first established in 2008 and provides high quality services and activities for families in our area. From drop in sessions to health clinics, outreach and home visiting services to adult learning, we aim to work in partnership with families to empower each individual to reach their full potential. 

There are changes this summer to how Surrey's Children's Centre's support families; to find out more click here.

I have loved taking my 15 months old to the baby group and under 3's group every week. Every member of staff has shown great competence, humanity and kindness and have made my daughter's and my own time there very precious and memorable.
