Customers are encouraged to attend the session related to their child’s age
        group but if they have children that cover both, they can attend the session that
        suits them. 

Customers are asked to please only attend 1 session per week due to
        the volume of participants attending on a Monday.  

Sessions start prompt at 10.30am but registration is from 10am onwards.  

We encourage customers to arrive early to avoid disappointment
