If you are attending a family learning course or a course at a learning centre, there may be limited crèche places available. If you are on a work-based learning programme, funding will be available to help pay for a crèche place or a registered childminders. Courses are held at a variety of community venues across our borough. You can find this guide in all local libraries.
A creche is open at Wood Green Library to support a number courses. Places must be booked at enrolment. A standard charge of £2 per session is made, or 50p per session to those on benefits. A further reduction is available to families with more than one child. (Learners who have Refugee/Asylum Seeker status will not have to pay.)
To be a positive force in our community, enabling people to achieve their learning and employment goals.

You have the opportunity to discuss your learning needs before, during or after attending a HALS course and you will be given support in order to find out what else you can do and progress onto.
