COVID 19 
As we gently move out of lockdown we are committed to keeping our staff and customers as safe as possible and will be following, reacting to, government guidelines.
We are hoping to restart our evening and weekend activities from Tuesday 1st September 2020.
This may mean reduced numbers in classes, or unfamiliar teaching spaces so that we can accommodate the appropriate social distancing requirements.
If your activity would usually use shared resources, you may be required to purchase an additional resource pack. More details to follow.
Details of course registration, and health guidelines will be sent to you in advance of your course.
Please note that if you wish to use the credit on your account to book onto new courses, this cannot be done online. Email community@wildern.org or phone 01489 779471.

SUMMER HOLIDAY ACTIVITIES AT the d.@rt Centre
We are delighted that we are able to open over the summer holidays for holiday activities.

Unfortunately we are unable to run our popular cookery courses this summer, but they will return on Saturdays  from September*, and in the October and Christmas Holiday.

* everything remains dependent on government guidance.

 

Our popular classes build on your arts and crafts skills in a fun and safe environment with experienced artists and tutors. This is childcare with a creative focus!

Childcare Vouchers:

If you wish to book courses and pay by childcare vouchers or tax free childcare payments, this can be done by sending the list of activities you would like to community@wildern.org. We will then contact you to let you know the total cost so that you can make the payment.
Tax free Childcare: 
Please do not pay the d.@rt until you have 100% of funds to cover the costs in your account. Unfortunately, if you do so, the government will not pay the 20% top up and it will be the customers liability to make the payment up to the full account.
If you would like to pay through your tax free childcare account please be aware of the following advice we have been given by the Childcare Choices team www.childcarechoices.gov.uk. When you have made your provisional booking and know the total amount you need to pay, transfer 80% of this amount into your tax free childcare account and wait for the government to pay in the remaining 20% before you pay the d.@rt. The government will only pay this money to your account once your 80% payment has been cleared.
