About Us

PDF icon Area Map for Sunshine Children's Centre (2.81MB)

Sunshine Children's Centre sits within Oxhey Early Years Centre. Together with Oxhey Early Years Centre we work on developing services, joining the Community together and partnering up with other services to work with families with children under 5. We want your children to have the best start to thrive, enjoying learning, be safe, be healthy and prepare them for school.

At our Children's Centre you and your family will be able to access the following:

  • Early Education and Childcare
  • Parenting Support and Specialist Services
  • Child and Family Health Services
  • Help and support to get back to work and training
  • Information and advice

In addition we also offer toddler groups, creches when we host courses, baby massage, childminding groups and events and activities that will ensure your children get as much fun in learning and support as they grow to become confident adults.

The Centre covers a large geographical area so we have formed partnerships with others to support delivery of services. As a result we run activities and services from other locations with the area including:

  • Centrepoint Community Hall on the Radlett Road Estate
  • St John's Church in Sutton Road, Watford Town Centre
  • Tesco Community Room
  • The Wellspring Community Church in Watford Fields and
  • Beechen Grove Baptist Church in the centre of Watford

We are here to help. Please let us know what you need from us and we will do our best to ensure it happens.

The Team.
