Ages 8 and under must be dropped off and collected by an adult. No restrictions on ages 9 and above.

Many of our activities are held outside. Should it rain heavily, we will try to find an alternative space indoors but this may not always be possible. Please make sure your children are dressed suitably for wet or messy activities.

Please ensure children bring water, sun-cream, and appropriate clothing for the weather for outdoor activities

Our activities are aimed at 5-11 year olds and their families, however we are very flexible and will try to accommodate younger or older siblings.
