A minimum of 1 full day session or 2 part time sessions per week are required for enrolment. The management may use their discretion if a family wish to reduce their contracted hours after a significant period of enrolment. The private places we offer are for 50 weeks per year. We are unable to accommodate “as and when” places due to staffing requirements.
We would however like to offer the flexibility for short notice additional sessions. Availability will always be dictated by staffing ratios. We will also endeavour to provide additional hours outwith your child’s normal session times should you require this and our staffing ratio’s allow us to provide this service.
