Use childcare vouchers to pay for our Get In! Active Fun, Skills Clinics, Mini or City Camps holiday courses running at our four leisure centres (Riverside, Chelmsford Sport and Athletics Centre, South Woodham Ferrers Leisure centre and Dovedale).
Vouchers can be used to pay for courses up to and including the Early Bird date, and are valid for all children aged 5 to 15.
You can pay using paper or online childcare vouchers as soon as the course dates go on sale. Just find the course you want to book your child on to.
Please note, we're unable to accept Childcare Vouchers for some courses run by external providers.

If using paper vouchers, request the exact amount of paper vouchers to cover the cost of the course at your chosen centre.
Once you have your vouchers, please visit your chosen leisure centre, using the paper vouchers as payment. If you don’t have enough vouchers to cover the cost of the course, you can pay the difference by cash or card.
If using online vouchers, log on to your voucher provider's website and set up a one-off payment for the exact cost of the course.
When you do this, you’ll need to use the correct reference code for your childcare voucher provider; please find these in the table below. You should contact us if your provider is not on the list.
Once you’ve made the payment, we’ll receive an automatic email from your childcare voucher provider. This can take five to seven working days.

Once you've booked, course days and venues cannot be changed.
