Following Surrey County Council’s restructuring of Children’s Centres across the county, YMCA Banstead Children’s Centre will unfortunately close this summer.

Our drop-in universal sessions for under 5’s will continue to run until Friday 14 June. We hope to see as many of you as possible for these final sessions.

The team at Banstead Children’s Centre will be onsite until the end of July to offer individual information, support and guidance.

Services delivered by the community outreach team will continue in Banstead and will be managed by Epsom Downs Family Centre from 18 June.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank YMCA Banstead Children’s Centre staff and parents/carers for all of their wonderful support over the years.

Please see Epsom Downs Family Centre’s website for more information on services from 18 June.

Alternatively, you can find out about activities for children in Surrey by using the Family Information Service.
