Visitor morning - thank you - it's a beautiful learning environment!

Great place, amazing staff. Great place for kids to learn and develop.

I use Dorking Rural Centre (Goodwyns Road) and I think it is fantastic. Staff are super supportive and facilities are superb.

I really enjoyed the post natal course at rural (Goodwyns Road), it was really informative and very useful. The weaning session led by the health visitor was very helpful too. Finally, I feel that my child and I have both benefited enormously from the kickers and crawlers group in West Street, it's a really lovely, welcoming and supportive environment, especially for new mums. The staff are great!

West Street Children's centre is a superb centre, equipped with wonderful staff who are caring and experienced.

The Centre is a brilliant resource for the community. The staff are approachable and knowledgeable. The activities are wide ranging and allow each child to find something that appeals to them. We love it!

The Centre is an invaluable resource for local parents. Attending Kickers and Crawlers has been the highlight of our week since my daughter was 7 weeks old and we will greatly miss it when we have to move on. A fantastic learning and socialising opportunity for children and mothers!

I have loved taking my 15 months old to the baby group and under 3's group every week. Every member of staff has shown great competence, humanity and kindness and have made my daughter's and my own time there very precious and memorable.

A truly wonderful place to take my granddaughter on Monday mornings.

We have mainly attended the centre for kickers and crawlers. Staff are great at providing new and exciting sensory experiences for the babies to enjoy and my daughter absolutely adore them!

A friendly, well run centre. The staff are excellent. Thank you for all your support.

We have always loved attending both Goodwyns Road & West Street sites - the staff are fantastic: enthusiastic, knowledgeable and friendly, and the facilities are beautiful. Thank you so much. xx

I learned a lot from the under 3s drop in with my first child. I watched the way the staff talked to the children and encouraged them and dealt with any sharing issues or conflicts with other children. This helped me to stop getting so frustrated when I was finding things difficult and to understand how a toddler operates. At home if I was finding a situation difficult I would imagine how the staff would deal with it and this helped me to be react in a calm and constructive way. I feel this helped guide my parenting and had a positive impact on my relationship with both my children.

I cannot compliment the Children's Centre staff enough on the under 3 sessions. They communicate so well with children and parents. The facilities in the room are great too.

It would be difficult to find a more supportive and welcoming environment than that provided by the Children's Centre staff.

I have been very lucky to have the centre so close to my house. I cannot praise them enough. It kept me sane after giving birth and I have met great mummies. Amazing place!
