The Red Oak Sure Start Children’s Centre

The Red Oak Sure Start Children’s Centre is open 8am-6pm Monday- Friday (8.30am-4.30pm during school holidays) and has been rated by Ofsted as ‘good’.

Based on the site of Furzefield Primary school, we are at the heart of the Merstham community and are a ‘one-stop shop’ for children under 5 and their families. We provide advice, information, support, courses, activities and more. We also have an onsite preschool.

Our area primarily covers Merstham, Bletchingley, Nutfield and South Nutfield, although families from anywhere are welcome to access our services and activities. Priority when needed, will be given to families inside our reach area.

Please send us your feedback on any activities or groups you have attended at the Children’s Centre, as this will help us make sure we’re providing the right services as well as where we need to improve.
