** We are a centre based in a busy working farm complex. The toilet facilities here are not inside our building and on a different part of the site. we cannot take your children to the toilet under child protection law, we ask that you ensure children have used toilet before they arrive , if you are remaining at the centre with your child, you can of course, accompany your child to the toilet **

*Childrens art classes – As We are not a child care setting and whilst we love holding art and craft sessions for the children, we do not accept children under 5, unless the parent remains at the centre for the duration of the class, children are expected to stay at the work table as we do not allow children to run around the centre for health and safety reasons. we have wifi and a comfy lounge, coffee and snacks available, for you to sit back, read, etc while the class is going on and we would only bother you if your child had any difficulty

*All staff hold a current DBS certificate
