  • Children in any of the sessions remain the responsibility of their Mums, Dads and Carers.

  • A variety of activities are set up for you and your children to join in and enjoy together.

  • As the Centre has many groups using the toys and equipment, it is important they are used safely and correctly.

  • Children are required to be accompanied by an adult in the toilets.
  • Parents/carers can take photographs or filming if the images are for personal use only:
