At Fernheath Play we offer a range of services mainly for children. During the term time we offer after school childcare to children at local schools. We can pick up from St Walburgas, Christ the King and Elm Academy as well as Heathlands School. Children attending for childcare are given a snack and can remain at the centre to 6pm. Alongside our after school childcare, we offer an after school activities session for local children who are registered from 3.45pm to 5.30pm.
We are open for the majority of school holidays for our playscheme which runs from 10-1pm and 2-5pm. We also offer all day childcare as part of this service including lunch from 8am – 6pm. In addition to our holiday playscheme we offer an inclusion project to children with a learning disability. As additional staffing is required this is by prior booking only and availability may be limited.
During 2018 we are continuing to offer our Playful Families project during term time for local parents and their children under 5. This provides a series of activities during the morning sessions including activities such as potter, exercise and family cooking.
