New Online Booking System

4th Jan 2022

We are introducing a brand new way of booking some of our groups for the new year. This will apply to just a small selection of our groups, the ones that would have been drop-in programmes before the Covid-19 pandemic. These will be:

  • Rhythm, Rhyme and Story Time 
  • Parent and Toddler Groups (Tuesday & Thursday Session)

How the Booking System Works

Instead of booking ahead for a 'block' of sessions as we had been doing, parents will now be able to book on themselves via our Website on a booking page located on the 'Parents' section here

You will only be able to book for the next weeks session, rather than many weeks in advance, and the new sessions will be put up every Friday for the following weeks sessions. There are 2 Parent and Toddler sessions, one on a Tuesday and one on a Thursday, and one Rhythm, Rhyme and Story Time session on a Tuesday. The number of available places in each programme is limited by the size of the venue and to allow social distancing of 2 metres in line with our Covid protocols and Risk Assessment. We would ask that parents choose just ONE of the 3 programmes each week to allow as many families to benefit from these groups as possible.

Once you book on, an email will be sent to you confirming your booking. There is a link in the email to cancel your booking if you will not be able to attend for any reason or if you or your child are unwell. We would ask that you please cancel if you will not be able to attend as this will allow another family to take up the space. The spaces are offered on a first come, first served basis, and once the maximum number is reached for the group, no more bookings will be taken - if this occurs just wait for the Friday when the next weeks booking come out and hopefully you will get a space.

We will contact all participants by text before each session. The sessions are still operating within our Covid protocols in order to keep families, children and staff safe, and we would ask that you respect these at all times. Wearing masks on entry and exit of the venues and in shared spaces until settled in your allocated space, maintaining 2 metres social distancing between adults, and confirming before the session that neither you or anyone in your household has symptoms or is currently self-isolating for Covid-19.

You must be registered with Colin Sure Start to book on to any of these sessions. If you are unsure whether you are registered or if you are eligible, please ring 90601417 BEFORE booking on to check, and we will assist you.

If you have any questions about any of these programmes or this new booking system, please do not hesitate to give us a call on 90601417 and we will be happy to assist you.
