About us

Play Academy is a dedicated onsite childcare facility offering wrap around childcare to pupils and siblings of the school. We offer breakfast and afterschool care at affordable prices to help parents juggle the hectic work and family lifestyle that is part of modern living. We understand that parents are unable to be in two places at the same time and that sometimes a little flexibility is needed from their childcare provider, so we offer ideas and solutions to cater to individual childcare needs.


Payments and fees

Fees are invoiced a month in advance and are payable by the 10th of each month. We offer a 10% sibling discount.

We are able to cater for difficult shift patterns by offering a half price retainer to hold places when they are not required. Please discuss your individual childcare needs with the manager.

Play Academy accepts the following childcare vouchers:

  • Co-operative childcare vouchers
  • Sodexo childcare vouchers
  • Edenred childcare vouchers
  • Computershare childcare vouchers
  • All Save childcare vouchers

We also accept payment by cash and cheque.
