Chosen the session for you?

Call our team to book your child in. Make sure you have your choice ready!

Lines are open 10am-2pm Monday to Friday. The number is 01202 443200

Check your email! We will confirm the date, time of your session, and details about how to get there in a handy email.

Things to remember:

We love seeing all children – but we will need to focus on the child booked in. To help us do this, please don’t bring any other children to the session..

Please be on time. We have lots of families to help so sessions need to finish when planned. If you are late, we may not have time to see you and will ask you to rebook for another session.
