During the Summer and Easter holidays, and the half term periods, we offer a playscheme facility for children from 3-13 years of age.

Our playscheme is very popular, usually filling up quite quickly. We open from 8am – 5.30pm and we provide a snack tea, along with mid morning and mid afternoon healthy snacks. All children attending playscheme are asked to bring a healthy packed lunch for their lunch time meal.

Our playscheme promotes fun, confidence building, peer interaction and social skill development in a way that is meaningful to the young people we support. We just have fun and try to make each day the best ever.

Refreshments and Lunch

Parents/carers are required to supply a balanced packed lunch each day.

We provide two snacks during the day and a light tea is provided for children who are in a session after 4pm.

Off Site Activities

Where an off-site trip or visit is planned, an additional fee may be required for entry. Please refer to the activity planner for further details.

How do I sign in/ sign out my child?

We have a signing in system as you drop off your child at playscheme. You are asked to write the name of the person collecting and an estimated time of pick up. If the person collecting the child is not named on the list, we do have the right to refuse pick up and call the emergency number. Our first and forefront responsibility is keeping the children safe at all times.

Can I drop my child off earlier than the opening times?

Unfortunately you are unable to bring your child any earlier than 8am or pick up any later than 5.30pm. Any children picked up later than 5.30pm or dropped off earlier than 8am, a cost of £5 will be charged per 15 minutes.

I have booked a space but my child is unable to attend?

If your child is unable to attend their booked slot, we ask you to provide the day nursery manager 3 days’ notice. You must do this by telephone only – our number is 01656 302 241. If you do not give a minimum of 3 days notice, you may be charged for your booking.

Do I still need to pay for my child if I haven’t cancelled their space in playscheme?

Yes, you are requested to make a payment on all bookings regardless of attendance, unless the three day notice period has been given.

Do I need to pack sunscreen and sun hats?

Yes – when the weather is good we take our children to play outside as much as possible. Please provide sun cream, sun hat and suitable clothing and footwear. If your child does not have any of these, they may not be able to join in the outdoor activities.

Do you accept childcare vouchers?
