Making our centres safe for you

The safety of your family and our people is our absolute priority during this time. We wanted to share with you the steps we are taking to make our centres safe and enjoyable.

We can’t wait to see you again!

From the 18th July, we will start reopening our learning centres.

We’re taking great care to ensure our learning environments are both safe and enjoyable for your children, alongside the relevant guidance for retail shops and branches.

Our centres will still offer the same award-winning tuition, the same engagement and the same vibrancy but they will look a little different…

Watch our video to see the 10 ways we are making our centres safe for you.

How are we making our centres safe for you?

Screens at the front desk to protect you and our staff.

We’ll be going paperless where possible.
There will be no paper sign in or paper session notes.

We’ll be taking lots of measures to support you and your child with social distancing.
Including signs throughout the centre and on the floor.

We’ll be operating a new booking system.
Limiting the amount of children arriving, leaving and in the centre. There will be a maximum of 15 children in the centre at any time.

Children will have 1 hour booked sessions.
We will space children across the zone to support social distancing.

All surfaces and equipment will be cleaned regularly.
Including computers and toilets.

Children will be encouraged to wash their hands at the beginning and end of their sessions.

It is important that your child feels comfortable and engaged in our centres, so they’ll be working with the same tutor every week.

For the time-being, Surf Club will not be accessible.



Further documentation of how we are reopening centres can be found here:

We know that some families will want or need to continue learning at home.

That’s why we’ve extended our membership options to allow both existing and new members to access our award-winning tuition online with Explore at Home.
