We hope that you have all been safe and well and that the children have enjoyed their return to school this week!
In the light of the government's recent announcement that the furlough scheme is being extended, as well as the continued difficulties in reopening the club at present (which we explained in our last email) - we’ve had to make the difficult decision to remain closed for the rest of this school year. We’re now looking to September 2021 (subject to Government and school requirements) for a fresh start.
We know that many of you will be disappointed by our decision as we are conscious of how much parents rely on our childcare services; however, we have had to make this decision to safeguard the future of PLAYtarium, and the jobs of our staff. This virus has affected all of us in ways we couldn’t have imagined, but with the rapid distribution of the vaccine and the government’s road map for the lifting of restrictions, we’re very hopeful that things will be much better in a few months’ time.
If you require an update regarding your current account, please log into your iPal account or contact us for further help. All of our staff are furloughed, but the emails will be checked periodically.
We will email you again during the summer holidays with updates about our reopening. We plan to open booking requests for September at St Jo’s & Sacred Heart clubs at the end of July, but we will let you know as soon as reasonably possible if this date needs to change.
Our holiday club will also be closed during the Easter, Whitsun and Summer holidays.
We’re looking forward to being able to open our doors again so much, and wish you all the best in the meantime.
Stay safe & well.
