Additional short notice child spaces

Rather than the play activity session running with unfilled children’s places, you have the option (in addition to your maximum 2 bookable sessions per child or if you were unable to book a session because it was fully booked), to telephone either Bandley Hill Play Centre on 01438 218848 or St. Nicholas Play Centre on 01438 722753 to check if there are any spaces available at short notice on the day.

  • Please telephone 45 minutes prior to the session time to check if we have any spaces available.
  • You will need to have registered your child online to be able to request a short notice space over the phone.
  • Please contact your local Play Centre if you need any help completing the online registration forms.
