Summer Playschemes 2017

The following is a list of open access playschemes that will be operating during the Summer holidays.

Open access schemes are generally free of charge, however some may ask for a small donation. Parents/Carers need to go with their child on the first day to complete a registration form, places usually can not be pre-booked and places are offered daily on a first come first served basis.

If your child has additional needs please discuss with the individual playscheme how they can best support your child. All playschemes should be operating inclusively and ALL children are welcome to attend regardless of race, religion or ability.

If you need any further information regarding these playschemes, please contact the Quality Assurance Team on 0161 245 7171 or email QAeducation@manchester.gov.uk
