We would also suggest clothes that you don’t mind getting messy due to our outdoor play, art & craft activities.
Please ensure all items brought to the setting are clearly labelled. Please ensure children do not bring any valuable toys or belongings with them as we cannot be held responsible if they go missing.

What happens if someone else needs to pick up my child?
Only the people listed in the child’s collector field on our booking system can pick up your child.

They will also need to bring photo ID. Any person collecting your child must be over 16 years of age.
My child is going to be absent or I need to cancel a session, what should I do?
You can cancel the settion once booked. However, fees are still charged for booked sessions whether the child attends or not. All contracted hours must be paid for in full and in advance regardless of attendance.
What if my child requires medication whilst at the setting?
Any child requiring medication, including inhalers, cannot attend until we have our own supply of the medication. We can only administer prescribed medication. Please ensure you hand any medication required with a Permission to Administer Medicine form.
