Our leisure centres are now open. You can find all the information about restrictions and Covid safety on individual activity pages.
Our fantastic crèche offers child care for children aged between 6 weeks and 5 years.
With qualified staff and OFSTED registration, you can enjoy your exercise at Riverside, knowing that your child is being well looked after.
To keep you, your child and our staff safe, there are some changes to how we operate:
If you or anyone in your household has Coronavirus symptoms, please do not visit the centre, or bring your child to the creche
Monday to Friday
You will not be able to use the creche on 6 May, as it will be used as a polling station.
If you are a monthly member, you can log in using your ourChelmsford account to book up to 10 days in advance.
If you are not a monthly member, the child must have an ourChelmsford account. Plus account holders can book 7 days in advance, and Lite holders 2 days.
Each bookable slot is 30 minutes, so two slots will need to be booked for an hour.
If you no longer need to use the crèche, please cancel at least two hours before the session starts, to avoid being charged.
If you need to cancel, you can:
Monday to Friday, 6am to 9pm Saturday and Sunday, 6am to 7pm Bank holidays: see facility opening timetables
Our facilities, including the ice rink may have separate opening times. Please check individual pages.
All prices are correct to 31 March 2022.
All information correct at time of publishing. Please check before each visit.
