In September 2006 we opened our brand new, purpose-built Children’s Centre.
We offer childcare for children aged 0-4 years and can provide a variety of sessions and times flexibly to meet most parents needs.
We have 4 separate room bases and each of these are named after flowers.
Daisises & Buttercups 0-2 years offers places for up to 18 children per session.
A minumum of 9 hours per week is required over 2 sessions to ensure children can settle.

Sunflowers & Poppies 3-4 years can offer 32 & 26 places per session. Children can attend for their nursery education grant of 15 hours per week , term time or additional hours can be added to suit needs.
In October 2016- Our on site children’s centre has become part of a network of children’s centre’s in Southend managed by Family Action.
Temple Sutton changed its name from Temple Sutton Children’s Centre to Temple Sutton Early Years to reflect the changes above.
We continue to provide childcare for children 0-4 years from 8am-6pm weekdays for 48 weeks per year.

Some employers offer vouchers, and, of course, there are other options available – for example, a childcare element of Working Tax Credits for people who are employed.
