Parents hoping for a less stressful Christmas shopping experience in Corby can take advantage of a new Drop ‘n’ Shop crèche.

Corby East Midlands International Pool is holding the sessions for youngsters aged between three months and five years old, with fully qualified staff keeping them entertained.

The Drop ‘n’ Shop service is available on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons for up to one hour and 55 minutes between 12:30 - 2:25pm.

Prices are just £3 for one hour or £5 for the full one hour and 55 minutes.

The crèche also provides a Swim and Bring service in which parents and guardians can enjoy an hour or two by themselves in the pool while the crèche staff look after and entertain your child.

A member of staff will then bring your youngster down to meet you poolside at a pre-arranged time so you can enjoy some swimming time together before you leave.

Corby Council’s lead member for community, Cllr John McGhee, said: “The crèche provides a convenient, safe and fun environment for youngsters to enjoy a couple of hours, allowing parents or guardians time to take for themselves or the chance to get bits ready for Christmas.”

Booking for the crèche is advisable and places can be reserved up to one week in advance, with payment required at the time of booking.

To book your place, please contact Corby East Midlands International Pool on 01546 464643 or go to the pool’s reception desk.
