2023 dates released! Book Now
We’re all cut from different cloths. Some of us like to fly by the seat of our pants, others have colour-coded diaries planned with military precision.
Whichever camp you sit in, we’ve decided to make it as easy as possible to organise your childcare and have now opened the entire academic year for bookings…and yes this includes Holiday Club!

I’d say from an orderly queue but go for your life! Whether you want to secure your children’s place at next year’s Summerstock or simply want to make sure next week is covered, you can now book as much as you need, as far in advance as September 2023.

All we ask is, if you do open the family calendar and book that far in advance, that you give us reasonable notice if you decide to cancel. We get it, plans change, but it just gives us the opportunity to offer the space to another child who may be waiting (and stops us becoming the Wicked Witch of the West chasing payment for missed sessions!)

POD remains open throughout, but our creative themes will change with each term. If you have a POD Preschooler looking for non-term time childcare or just want your child to experience new things, you may want to try Holiday Club. It’s up to you; POD will continue to flex around what you need and we’re happy to chat if you want to discuss your options.

Fill your boots!
