How to book your child in to Care Club

We have two ways of booking your child in to Care Club:

  1. Book in advance for the week ahead by ringing or texting Care Club staff, or
  2. ring Head Start Day Nursery or text the Care Club phone to let the staff know they need to pick up your child from class.

Please remember to tell your child’s class teacher so they are aware of whom your child will be going home with.

During the holidays, you will need to provide your child with a healthy packed lunch. We will provide breakfast and snacks throughout the day.
