Crèche and Childcare

Keep the kids happy while you grab some me time

We know everyone needs some me time, don't worry we've got it covered. Enjoy working out or chilling out while the kids have fun in our crèche, our trained teams look after babies from 6 weeks to tots up to four years old. You can do whatever you need to do in the club while we make sure the kids have fun.

From making masks to being superheroes, kids get stuck into arts and crafts, sand play and sing-a-longs with a dedicated snack break which of course is healthy, nutritious and in line with our soulmatefood ethos. 

Our crèches are also fully registered with the appropriate regulatory bodies: in England it’s Ofsted, Scotland the Scottish Social Services Council, Northern Ireland the Health Care Trust and Wales the Care & Social Services Inspectorate.

If your child is under three, the crèche is pay as you go for up to fours a day but of course you'll need to stay on site. Once they're old enough for a membership with us it’s included.  

So give yourself a workout in peace (or just go to the spa!) and the kids will get a new adventure. Check out our crèche today.
