Manager’s Welcome

Welcome to May and hopefully finally to Spring! I hope you managed to take advantage of the half price guest fee over the bank holiday weekend and enjoyed the club with friends and family? The good news for those who missed out is that we will also be running the same promotion at the end of the month!! So please remember to add the date to your diaries.

It’s great to see lots of families using the club in 2016 and knowing we have lots of children big and small in the club makes me even happier knowing that our onsite nursery & crèche provider is offering such a great deal for Roko members. First Steps are an OFSTED registered setting that provides excellent child care for children from 2 months- 5 years. They offer 5 crèche sessions throughout the day that fit in with the Roko class timetable.

The cost of the crèche session is £6.95 or you can buy a block booking card for £65 for 10 sessions (£6.50 per session)
They are also a full day care nursery so if you are going back to work and are looking for child care then look no further than First Steps. They have a wide range of unique selling points that makes them stand out from the rest which includes:
Fresh home cooked food.
Degree trained staff.
2 Large garden areas.
1-1 swimming sessions for the children.
NO extra cost for 7.30 starts this is a standard opening time.
They also have a full timetable available on line at www.childrensdaynursery.co.uk or you can pick one up from First Steps.

Kind regards
Gary Jepson
General Manager

Children's memberships are fully flexible (just one month's notice of cancellation is required) so you could add them to your membership for holiday periods or for the longer term.

Children’s News

Another half term is around the corner so again, we are making it easy for parents/guardian’s to organise their week by getting the junior timetables out early.  You can pick up the May half term timetable from Friday 13th May.  We are also putting on a Kids class Monday 2nd May 9:30-10:30am, so parents do not need to miss out on their workout that Bank Holiday Monday! 

Half Term Swim Crash Course
Roko is holding a week intensive swim course for Stages 1-2 Adv, from Monday 30th May – Friday 3rd June.  This course will be with Mel and each stage will be at the same time every day.  During the Easter swim course we had 6 children move up from a Stage 2 advanced to stage 3 in just one week!  All 6 children went from doing 5M Breaststroke with arm bands to 15M+ unaided!!  This really does show how these intensive courses can bring the children along with their swimming.  Well done to ALL the children who attended the course that week 😊 Information about the crash course will be released Friday 13th May.  If you need any more information before then, please email jarcher@york.roko.co.uk

Swimming Lessons
The current swim term is coming to an end so you guessed it……it is enrolment time!  All children who currently swim on the Roko swim programme will receive an enrolment form to book on again for next term. Once you have received this form you have until Sunday 15th May 4pm to book your child on to the next course. Here are the dates you need to make note of if you would like your child to continue to have swimming lessons at Roko:
Swimmers who are currently on the swim programme can book on between: Monday 2nd May – Sunday 15th May up to 4pm
(Once you have received your enrolment form from your child’s teacher)
Swimmers who are currently on the Swim programme can change day/time/teacher: Sunday 15th May 4-8pm.
(Please note you can only change day/time/teacher if there is availability. If you have not booked because you want to change your child’s class, there is a possibility you could lose your original space.  We advise you to book the original space we give you and then try and change day if needed.
