Closure of the University’s Holiday Play Scheme

We regret to announce that the University’s holiday play scheme for older children during school holidays is to close because of the low take up of places during the last year and the increasing availability of schemes elsewhere in the Bath area.

The holiday play scheme was introduced several years ago to meet the demand from students and staff.

Although the University has continued to run the scheme for several sessions, take up has been consistently below the level required for it to be viable. This is disappointing, but seems to be a clear indication that many parents have found other provision.

There are now numerous other schemes available to parents in the Bath area, with others expected to open following encouragement by the Government.

Parents of children who have used the scheme in the past have been informed of the decision to close the play scheme in time for them to make alternative arrangements before the May half-term.

We appreciate that this may cause inconvenience.

Details of alternative schemes are available from Pauline Young, Childcare Services Manager in the Westwood Nursery, ext 6518, or direct from The Family Information Service (BANES) The Family Information Service (BANES) , tel: 0800 0731214.
