The drop in sessions are filled on a first come, first served basis. We may, on occasions, have to limit the numbers depending on what activity is running and may have to put a sign on the door to say that the session is full. If the sign is on the door please ring the bell and talk to a member of staff.
Please park buggies in the designated areas and not inside any of the Children & Family Centres buildings.
Food and Drink
During drop-in sessions (excluding celebrations) could you please ensure that your child only consumes food and drink provided by the Children & Family Centre. This will comprise of fruit and water. This is because some children who attend have severe allergies to certain foods.
It is Southwark’s Policy that adults cannot consume hot drinks in sessions where children are present due to Health and safety considerations
