We try to accommodate all families as much as we can. If the sessions that you require are full, we try to offer alternative sessions until they become available and you can join a waiting list.

Transitions happen throughout the year for our children to other rooms, therefore availability does vary. We recommend if you know the sessions that you require, to reserve them as soon as you can, to avoid disappointment.
