Open evening opportunity at Outstanding Oscars

Published Monday, 2nd July 2018

Parents in Hartlepool are invited to come along to an open evening to see everything Oscars has to offer for their children.

The Hartlepool Council-run Oscar club, based at Rossmere Youth Centre on Rossmere Way, will open its doors to prospective parents on Thursday 5 July 2018 from 6.15pm till 7pm.

Under 8 activities at oscars

Staff will be on hand to answer questions, help parents fill out registration forms and explain Oscars’ newly-expanded service, which offers support for working parents of three and four year olds who are eligible to receive up to 30 hours free childcare per week.

Sandra Robinson, the Council’s Out of School Coordinator, explained: “We would always encourage parents in the town who may be looking at various childcare options to come along and see how their children could grow, learn and excel at Oscars.

“It will also form the perfect opportunity to discuss the ways in which we are supporting eligible parents to access the Government’s 30 hours free childcare scheme.

“We currently offer a well-attended afternoon nursery for children who attend morning sessions in a school setting, and so we are excited to expand our service offering to also open on a morning to cater for the children who attend afternoon school sessions.

“This means children who are eligible can attend 15 hours in the morning or 15 hours in the afternoon. Hours can also be used for our afterschool provision or Playscheme weeks, which run during school holidays.

“We hope parents will take this opportunity to come along and view our fantastic facilities, speak to our dedicated team of staff and find out more about the wide range of exciting activities and learning opportunities we provide.”

Staff will also be on hand to take booking for the upcoming summer Playscheme. Each day, parents are able drop off their children from 8am with breakfast provided for them on arrival. They then embark on an action-packed day of fun prior to being collected by parents by 5.45pm.

If you are a parent interested in attending the open evening, please contact Sandra Robinson on 07771 940463 or email to confirm your attendance.
