We also plan half term activities, so pick up one of our special timetables with lots to do with the family over the school break.

Waterways is also home to our nursery day-care provision.  Come and talk to us if you want childcare for your 2, 3, 4 year old - you may be entitled to the 15hrs (2/3s) & 30hrs (3/4s) free entitlement offer!  We have 'fee paying' vacancies, so pop along to see us and have a tour around the nursery so you can ask relevant questions about us and what we do!

We also run an After School Club at Waterways Children's Centre.  We pick up from the following schools and at £10 per session, your child will be collected, looked after and given the opportunity to learn and play after school. 

We also offer this space for Birthday Parties, contact us on to find out more.
