Daycare Centre

THE DAYCARE CENTRE

The Daycare Centre is open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10am to 4pm. Our aim is to create a “home from home” atmosphere, with lots of activities including art and craft, gentle keep fit, visiting entertainers, quizzes, raffles and bingo, but above all the chance to socialise and make friends.

A light breakfast, lunch and an afternoon cup of tea are provided and special diets can be catered for. All food is prepared on the premises by our own kitchen staff. For those who wish it, there are prayers and Holy Communion on the First Fridays. Transport can be provided in a minibus for those within a certain radius of the Centre. Clients are referred by the local Public Health Nurses, and there is a small daily charge, which is paid weekly.
