Mary's Easter Half Term Play Scheme is now open for bookings! The scheme will run from 6th - 16th April 2021. 

Due to the current lockdown rules, we will only be able to care for vulnerable children and children of working parents who are residents of Islington. The places for vulnerable children will be fully funded but these are very limited.  You will need to contact us directly to be assessed for a free vulnerable child's place or to discuss your child's additional needs via the [email protected] e-mail or by calling us/leaving us a message on 0207 7042873.

We are catering for 25 children per day and children will be kept in two bubbles (up to 15 per bubble) for the duration of their time with us.

The cost is £20/day 9 am to 5 pm. Extended sessions are available for an additional £3 for an earlier start from 8.30 am or for a later finish at 5.30 pm, £6 for both. 

You will need to book any additional extended time at the same time when selecting your core days. We will not be able to offer sibling discounts on this occasion. A minimum of 3 days must be booked. We will prioritise bookings made for the full scheme so we can maximise our available capacity without compromising the integrity of the bubbles.

Please read through all of the below before you book.  

For the safety of everyone involved, children, parents and staff, we have put in place a range of measures designed to minimise the risk of the spread and infection of COVID-19 virus. You can read our full COVID Risk Assessment via this link.

We will need everyone’s support to keep to these measures.

Drop-offs and Pick Ups

In order to minimise person to person spreading of the COVID-19 virus, we will ask parents to drop off and pick up their children at the main entrance to the Centre and not come into the building at all. We ask parents to form a socially distanced orderly queue outside the entrance to the Community Centre.

You must not bring your child to the scheme if they or anyone else in the household developed Coronsvirus Symptoms or tested positive with COVID-19! Equally, if your child is feeling generally unwell please inform us and keep them at home.
