Dear Parents/Carers,

Thank you so much for taking the time to complete the questionnaires regarding our opening times and the possibility of opening holiday clubs, and longer hours during term time. We are pleased to announce that we will be open on Tuesday afternoons from after Easter!

Our holiday club will be starting this Easter! In addition we plan to run during the May and October half terms, at Christmas and for the last three weeks of the Summer holidays.

We do need a minimum number of children to run each day so please get your forms and deposits back by the deadlines to ensure the club runs and you don’t miss out on the early bookers discount!
