At Deepdene alongside all-year-round care, children can attend our Nursery during term time only. This is a popular option for teachers and those who work in schools. This allows parents the option of spending school holidays with their children. A holiday club operates all year for those parents who need all-year-round care. We only shut for 2 weeks at the end of August and for one week at Easter and Christmas.
