If you cannot find what you are looking for, please call 01634 332 195 

Due to Covid-19, some settings/activities may need to close for short periods of time under advice from Public Health and therefore we ask that enquirers please check with an advertised service first to check if they are open at this time.  We would recommend that you contact providers and face-to-face services, to see if there are any extra measures you will need to abide by if attending classes/sessions.

Reminder for all parents claiming 30 hours funding for 3-4 year olds:
Please renew your code for next term by 31 December 2022 at the latest

To keep your 30 hours free childcare place, you need to check your details are up to date every 3 months.
