Childcare Providers 

At The Hideaway we love childcare providers and think they do an incredible job caring for children. The Hideaway has a huge range of fun educational equipment and resources in a safe environment where you can care for multiple children across a range of ages at the same time. As such, it is becoming an increasingly popular choice for childminders and nannies to bring children under their care. 

We currently have hundreds of childcare providers that visit us on a regular basis which is incredible. However, due to the very low charge that we offer, we do have to cap these numbers each session to ensure that The Hideaway remains financially viable and open for everyone. Childcare providers are therefore advised to book online before coming to the Hideaway. If online booking is unavailable for the session you want, this means that there are no more spaces available for childcare providers at the reduced rate for that session and you will need to either book another session, or pay the full rate. 


Our rates are currently:

Off-peak: £1.50 per child over 12 months for 2 hours of play

Peak: £3 per child per child over 12 months for 2 hours of play

Adults: 1 free adult per paying child. Additional adults charged at £1.50

Rates are strictly subject to availability. Pre-booking is heavily advised. 

Picnic Policy

Due to the incredibly low rates that we charge our customers, we have a strict no picnic policy at The Hideaway. We have water freely available on the servery for all customers and provide a range of home made baby food. We can also cater for most food allergies. We provide a plate of biscuits and jug of juice for just £3. Any childcare providers found to be ignoring this policy will be removed from our childcare providers membership and have to pay full rate.

Registration and risk assessments

For any childcare providers wishing to register for the reduced rate, we just need to see proof of your registration with the local authority and ID along with completion of the form below. We've also created an editable ready to go risk assessment to make it as easy as possible for you!
