Playscheme offers a home away from home, nurturing the children’s abilities through free play and structured activities and events.

We aim to offer activities designed to encourage children’s creativity with the right balance and structure to help them develop their confidence, make judgements and take risks safely, helping the children to develop their full potential.

Playscheme is open to children aged 2-5 years with or without special needs, and aged 5-7 with special needs only, and runs during school holidays and half terms.


All our staff are experienced and either have qualifications or are working towards qualifications. All have enhanced DBS Checks and are given training at the start of each Playscheme, ensuring that we reach the highest possible standards.

Sessions run from 9.30-12.00 in the morning and 12.30-3.00 in the afternoon. The majority of children attend for a full day, where they bring a packed lunch with them. Playscheme costs £9.00 for a half day, and £18.00 for a full day. If anyone would like to access our holiday activities or would like more information, please contact the Centre on 01594 837552.
