Welcome to Tennyson’s Sure Start Children’s Centre.
We are part of the national network of Sure Start Children’s Centres. We are funded by Surrey County Council to provide support and services for Surrey residents with a GU26 or GU27 postcode. The aim of all Sure Start Children’s Centres is to ensure that all children from birth to five years of age have the best possible start in life. We work with families and carers to support them in achieving the best for their children.
If you live in West Sussex, you can find information regarding your county’s nearest children’s centre by calling 01243 777807.
If you live in Hampshire you can find information regarding your county’s nearest children’s centres by calling 0300 555 1384.
Alternatively, do not hesitate to phone us and we will do our best to point you in the right direction.
Here at Tennyson’s, we are a part-time Centre and we provide a range of activities to support the community, all of which you can find out about on this website. If we do not directly provide the service that your family needs, we will do our best to signpost you to other services, making the best possible use of all things available to children and their families within our area. Some of our services and activities are held at the children’s centre whilst others are held in various venues within our area.
Some of our activities are open to all families – but some services and activities offer support for families at a time when life is a bit of a struggle.
REQUEST TO BOOK: It is now possible to request to book online onto one of the courses we run here at Tennyson’s Sure Start Children’s Centre. These courses currently include First Aid, Baby Massage and the Parenting Puzzle.

Let Us Help
As well as running regular activities, we can also assist with supporting parents to return to work, support families in accessing other voluntary or statutory services, assisting parents in choosing child care or nursery places. All of our events are free or heavily subsidised (although we do ask for a voluntary contribution towards some activities). So come along and see what the Sure Start Children’s Centre can offer you and your family.We are YOUR local Children’s Centre and the services we run are based on what YOU need. So tell us what our area is missing and tell us how we can support you more.
We look forward to meeting you and your family.Kind Regards,
Rachel and the team at Tennyson’s Sure Start Children’s Centre
