Potters Gate Children's Centre

Welcome to Potters Gate Children's Centre  

An Academy Children’s Centre, part of the Good Shepherd Academy Trust 

We are located in the centre of Farnham, off Beavers Road, and we provide a wide range of activities and events for families of children from birth to five years old living in our reach area.  As well as running regular fun activities for you and your children, we can help by supporting parents to return to work, help families to accessing other voluntary or statutory services and assist parents in finding child care or nurseries and applying for childcare (FEET) funding. All of our play sessions and courses are free, so come along and enjoy what Potters Gate Children’s Centre can offer you and your family. 

Use the What's On link to see our calendar of events.

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 are a part-time Centre and work with families and carers to support them in achieving the best for their children. We look forward to meeting you and your family.

Kind Regards, 
Hollie and the team at Potters Gate Sure Start Children’s Centre
