Often with small children the thought of filling the summer holiday time can be quite daunting especially if money is tight.

Many playgroups and mother and toddler groups are closed over the summer holidays which can be isolating for families, however the Sure Start Centres are all open during holiday periods meaning you can fill your summer days with activities and excursions for the family at a very reasonable price. With sessions starting from as little as £1 and excursions starting from £5 you can afford to keep your children entertained this summer.

Below is an extensive guide of Summer time sessions and excursions for your children held at the Sure Start Centres of Epsom and Ewell.
