The Drop-In Crèche: An Overview

The Drop-In Crèche is open during term time Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays) from 8.30 am to 2.30 pm. Sessions can be for a minimum of one hour and can be booked for regular sessions or flexibly on an ad hoc basis.

Prior to using the Drop-In Crèche, you will need to register your child with us by bringing in your child for a (free) settling in session whilst we collate your registration details and all relevant information regarding your child. You will need to pay a one-off registration fee of £50. During this registration and settling in session we would like to get to know a little more about your child, know their likes and dislikes and find out about any special dietary requirements and medical conditions or religious traditions that we would need to observe with your child whilst they are at the crèche. You will also be required to sign a Parental Agreement which sets out the terms and conditions of your registration. Once this registration procedure has been completed then, you’re ready to go and can proceed to book your sessions.

At the Drop-In Crèche children will benefit from:

  • Depending on the sessions attended, a wholesome breakfast and/or lunch prepared by the Gwendolen House in-house catering team; and
  • Structured, social and creative indoor activities.
