Update for booking information for Summer Holiday Playscheme 2020 (Friday 3rd July 2020)
We are planning on opening all three of our Holiday Play-scheme settings – Queen Edith’s, St Luke’s and Cottenham
The key restriction the government have put into place is limiting the number of children to consistent group of 15. Therefore we will be setting up age specific “bubbles” in which you can book your child into and we will not be allowing any mixing or cross booking of these bubbles. There are no trips this year 🙁
To ensure we have consistency in the group or bubbles we will only be accepting week long bookings (i.e. Monday – Friday). This will ensure new children can’t join a bubble midweek, but will allow you to book weeks 1 and 3 without needing to book week 2.
There will be a number of other protocols in place for including regular hand washing & different drop off and collection arrangement. We will outline this further in our invitation to book email next week.
Unfortunately, this summer we will not be able to accept children under the age of 5, (i.e. which have not started school as yet), as there is a separate set of protective measure in place for this younger grouping.
Due to the protective measure we are putting in place as well as the limitation of bubble size we are experiencing an increase in our costs (mostly in additional staffing). Therefore we have to make the difficult decision to increase our weekly session prices to make the holiday provision financially viable.
We will be using this to invite you to make your bookings in a phased approach. We are working on the criteria to make the booking as fair as possible to parents who need to secure a holiday play-scheme place and our regular children.
We would like to thank you for your ongoing support and understanding at this time.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to drop us a note. We may take a little longer than usual to reply, however we will endeavor to answer all questions.
Stay safe & healthy
