Fernheath Play - West Howe (5-12 year olds)

We offer after school childcare to children from schools around Bournemouth, including St Walburgas, Malmesbury Park, Christ the King, Heathlands and Elm Academy. We pick up from school at an additional charge of £1.50 per child. Pick up from Heathlands Academy is free. The cost of childcare to 6pm including snack is a further £7. Note we can only take children who are in year one of school and upwards. 

We also offer holiday childcare from 8am to 6pm. The charges for this are £12 half day and £20 full day.

We have a range of facilities including two halls which we use for arts and crafts, indoor games etc. A kitchen, a sensory room (largely used for our inclusion project) , and a large outside play area incorporating a range of play equipment including a zip wire, swings, climbing frames, trampoline, roundabout, sand tray, sensory garden, and seating area around a fire pit. We deliver a range of sports and games. 

During holiday periods we may offer opportunities for children with disabilities to be included in play sessions depending on funding.
