Age Range: 0 – 5 years

The One O’Clock Club is a fun and safe outdoor play space for children under 5 and their parents/carers. Grown-ups can relax with a cuppa and a snack from our newly refurbished kiosk, while the little ones explore. With our ride-ons, scooters, playhouses and sandpit, there is plenty to occupy them. Our Playworkers are there to oversee, and facilitate any messy play and craft activities, and on warm days, the paddling pool and sprinkler is always popular. We are open whatever the weather, rain or shine! We offer a range of messy & wet play opportunities so please expect that your child may need a change of clothes at the end of the session. Please support your child in their play by dressing them in clothes for playing in that you don’t mind getting messy. See below for our opening times.

Before You Arrive

Everyone needs to register and pre-book before entering the One O’Clock Club. This is to make sure we have the correct contact details in case of an emergency, and to give us the information we need for our funders.

Please ensure you register your child first, in his/her name, before you book, and choose the relevant membership. One O’Clock Club bookings are per family group, so only the eldest child under 5 needs to be registered. Once registered, you can log in with your child’s details and book a session in their name.

Please visit our home page for guidance on registering and booking.

If you have a child over 5, using the Adventure Playground, please create a separate membership in their name before booking.
