  • Weekday access to Woodlands Park for a whole year
  • Valid for up to 6 children per visit

The Childminder’s Annual Pass grants free access to Woodlands for 1 childminder and between 1 & 6 children under 13 years old. The pass is valid during weekday opening hours allowing you to enjoy all our outdoor rides, indoor soft play, 8-acre Zoo Farm, and Falconry, throughout the year.

Registered Nannies are accepted if they are ofsted registered, proof of address has to match the ofsted certificate.

We are sorry but the pass is solely for the use of the Childminder. We do not currently offer a pass for assistants.

Childminder Memberships have to be set up either at the park or by post. If you are posting your form to us we need proof of the documents listed above. They can be scanned and printed off and sent to us.  We will not accept emails as the form has to be signed and dated.  We are unable to accept cheques so please make sure there are contact details on the form and we will ring you to take the payment over the phone.

Your new pass is valid for a Year from the date you purchase it or we receive the form.

This pass does not include entry into our Seasonal Grottos.

It is valid for up to 6 children under 13 years old.

If you are registered for more than 6 children, we apologise but this pass is a maximum of 6. We do not offer a higher ratio. This is due to safety reasons and is the same ratio set for group visits.

For health and safety reasons the maximum number of children you can bring is 6 per adult. It is the same as our school’s ratio of 1 adult to every 6 children.

You cannot pay for extra children if you are already visiting with 6.
