The Spinney Children's Centre


The Spinney Children's Centre is a friendly, community venue where parents with young children can enjoy fun activities, receive support, attend health services and access quality childcare.

 Surrey County Council’s Cabinet made the decision to stop offering Sure Start children’s centre provision across Surrey.

The changes are taking place at different times across the different districts and boroughs.

Across the borough of Guildford, Sure Start provision will cease on 24th July 2019. This means that most universal services such as “Play and Learn” and “Pre-Walkers” will stop.

Parents can use the Family Information Directory ( to find universal and other services, support groups, activities and more.

When the Sure Start centres and provision stops the new Family Centres will open. Guildford Nursery School is leading and managing provision across the borough. Whilst there will be very little universal provision there will be some groups and services running for target groups. There will also be family support and home visits for referred families living across the borough.

The newly set up Family Centres are located as follows:-

Guildford Nursery School (Hazel Avenue) – open weekdays, all year round from 8am – 6pm

Ash Grange Primary School – open weekdays during term time from 9am – 12 noon

The Spinney – open weekdays during term time plus some school holiday time from 9am – 4pm

Until 24th July please continue to contact your local Sure Start Centre for information and advice. From 25th July please call 01483 566589 or check the new family centres website (  to find out more.
