Welcome to Horley Children’s Centre!

As you may know there will be changes this year to children’s centres and how Surrey County Council supports families.

The new approach will involve Surrey County Council focusing its resources on helping the families most in need of support, which means that some of the existing children’s centres will close and others will become Family Centres. Surrey County Council will no longer provide universal services for all families at Family Centres but other organisations, such as health visitors, may offer these at the centres and at other community venues.

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

The changes will take place at different times across Surrey’s 11 districts and boroughs, so to make sure families can find out what is happening in their area the district and borough pages on the Family Information Service website will be regularly updated from April. They will provide information about when current activities offered at children’s centres will close and where Family Centres will open.

In addition there is a new page on the website which provides information about the final proposals that were agreed by Surrey County Council’s Cabinet. This also has a link to the results of the consultation that was undertaken to get views and suggestions on the draft proposals.

Kind regards,
Children Centre Team

The Horley Sure Start Children’s Centre is situated in the grounds of Meath Green Infant School and was opened in 2008. It is funded by the Local Authority, Surrey County Council and is a not for profit organisation.

Sure Start Children’s Centres have been set up to improve outcomes for young children and their families and reduce inequalities between families in the greatest need and their peers by way of child development and school readiness, parenting aspirations and skills, and child and family health and life chances.

Our Centre provides a wide range of services, activities, information and advice for families, parents and carers of children who are aged 0-11. Priority for some activities is given to families living within the Horley West and Central reach area. We also use some community venues in Horley such as Horley Baptist Church and The Young People’s Centre.

Programme leaflets are available in the Centre and also available to download to the right of this page by simply clicking on the download link.
