Children’s Activity Centres

We have 29 Children’s Activity Centres set up and open to children of Category 1, 2 and 3 key workers. These centres are there to provide essential childcare for key workers, if they need it, in order for them to continue to work.

Please be aware, this service is for children where both parents are key workers, or where there is a lone parent who is a keyworker. If parents have any other options for childcare when they are working, they should use these. These centres should be a last resort for parents who have no other choice. You may feel it will be better to keep your children at home.

You must have already registered with a centre before your child can attend.

Our centres will only be providing childcare for nursery and primary school children at this time.

For information on Private and Voluntary Sector Early Years Providers  who are offering childcare to key workers see the list below.

Vulnerable children

Children with additional support needs whose parents are both key workers, will be supported within our Children’s Activity Centres.

Our Children and Families team have been working very closely with our headteachers. They are making sure that all those children who may be especially vulnerable by not attending school will continue to have a member of staff looking out for them. The welfare of our children is a priority at all times and our staff will remain in contact with those children.
