Booking Procedures

Due to the popularity of our childcare services, places may not always be available. Therefore, advanced booking is recommended.

All bookings must be made through our reception.

If your child requires a drop-off to playgroup or nursery in the morning can you please ensure that they are in the centre by 8:45 am to ensure that we have enough staff to drop off all children on time.

This is an extremely popular service and if you are late dropping your child off we cannot guarantee that your child will be dropped off on time or they may not be dropped off at all.

Please note that your child must be registered before they can come to our childcare department. You can download our registration form here or pick one up from the centre
