This may vary due to trips, outreach, or special events, but a leaflet is produced a few weeks before the play scheme starts.

We ask that you make a yearly voluntary contribution of £10 per child, per year on registration. This is purely voluntary and if you do not wish to contribute you will still receive the fantastic service and will not be excluded from any activities or events. 

We offer a nutritious meal during the evening sessions at lunch times on a Saturday and in the holidays. The cost of this is £1.50 and must be ordered in advance. We also have a tuck shop selling a range of snacks and drinks this is usually opened once or twice during the play session. 

Open Access
GAPA Open Access Adventure Playground is open access and free to registered children and young people. We are not a care facility, we are 'open access' this means children may come and go as they please. Staff cannot accept responsibility for ensuring children remain on the premises or escort them home. In emergencies GAPA may have to close without warning, so please check that your child knows where to go in the event of a closure. If you require a childcare facility please contact the Lincolnshire’s Family Information Service on 0800 195 1635

GAPA offers an extensive activity programme during school holidays as well as year-round after-school play provision. We encourage child-led play experiences both indoors and outdoors in all types of weather and throughout the seasons. Activities such as music, games, sports, cooking and arts and crafts are facilitated by playworkers with the children’s consultation. The staff offer support and encouragement for children to try new experiences, gain confidence, take risks and push boundaries. The playground can be a messy place at times with lots of paint, glue etc so please ensure that old clothes are worn during play sessions.

All the GAPA policies are available to read at any time.
