General Information

You will be asked to sign in your child when you drop them off in the morning. We will also need a contact number for you, in case of emergency, or if your child needs to be collected early for any reason. All Science Oxford staff are fully DBS checked and trained in safeguarding.

Children will need clothes that can get messy and a packed lunch every day. Drinks and snacks will be provided. Additionally, in cold weather, they will need a warm, waterproof coat and wellies or outdoor shoes. In warm weather, the children will need sunscreen and may wish to bring sunglasses and sun hats.

They will also need a bag to keep their belongings together and to take home anything that they have made that day. Please ensure that all items are named.

Science Oxford is committed to inclusion and no child will be excluded from activities due to disability, allergies or other issues. It is helpful if we know any issues that your child may have in advance, so that we can make appropriate provision for them. Please contact Sophie on 01865 810000 or [email protected] to discuss this.

For more information, if you have any questions or to book a place for your child, please contact Sophie on 01865 810000 or [email protected].

Younger siblings can be considered for a place if accompanied by a sibling aged 8-12.

Places are limited to 30 each day, with priority for places going to residents of that area.
