Extra affordable childcare places available for half term

With the October half term fast approaching, Tower Hamlets Council has extra places available for their affordable holiday scheme.

The scheme supports working parents who can book extended hours from 8am - 6pm, as well as the standard 9am - 5pm option. Places are also provided for children with special educational needs and disabilities. The Tower Hamlets Holiday Childcare Scheme is Ofsted registered and provides childcare for children aged 3 to 13 years old. The holiday provision takes place in Tower Hamlets schools and operates during the school holidays (excluding the Christmas break), from an option between 8am to 6pm (for working parents) or 9am to 5pm. Parents should provide their child with a packed lunch.

The Council provides a good quality, safe, inclusive childcare service encouraging all children to engage and participate in play-based activities indoors and outdoors. Highly qualified staff plan and provide a wide range of fun activities following the children’s interests, including, sports, cooking, creative arts and crafts, street dance, zumba, games, film making and much more. They promote and encourage children to choose their own activities and make decisions for themselves.
