Children's Centres update August 2019

The Children's Centres in Surrey County Council are transitioning into Family Centres and will be operational from 1st September 2019.

Family Centres will offer targeted services for families with children aged from 0 to 11 years. 


In Spelthorne borough, Clarendon (Ashford) will be the new Family Centre Hub, and

Buckland (Staines) & Saxon (Shepperton) will be satellite centres. 


To maximise our effectiveness services will be offered to families on an "appointment only" basis, or by a referral from another agency.

Families with concerns may call/contact centres directly for advice and support.

Buckland Children’s Centre no longer provides 

universal services.


The following sessions / services have ceased:

  • ActivTots at Spelthorne Leisure Centre (last session was 12th July)

  • Childminder’s Play & Learn  (last session was 16th July)

  • Play and Learn (last session was 24th July)

  • Sensory Time for Babies (last session was 24th July)
