Our Bus Service

Playscheme provides a free supervised bus service from across the North West.  Once again we are pleased to welcome Tyrers as our partner in providing all our transport requiredments.

All buses are seat belted and bus times are issued closer to Playscheme - this allows us to make sure that we have timetables that are as accurate as possible. 


Grouping of Children


We understand that children just want to be with their friends and we offer the grouping keyword system to provide for this.  Children using the same keyword will be placed together, wherever possible.         

When booking your child onto scheme simply select a keyword.

If you are first in the group to book then choose on of the top few keywords as these are new and unused.  If you want to add your child onto an exisitng keyword scroll down the list to find it.  The number next to it is how many children are already using that keyword.      

Places will be limited but watch this space for more details -bookings will open after Easter 2024.

If more than 6 children use the same keyword we CANNOT keep them in the same group - where possible they will be placed in adajacent groups though.

Age Groups (Divisions)

Children are grouped according to their 'school age' - this is their age on 31st August.  We have three main 'divisions, these are:


For ages 5-7 this division is more structured and nurturing providing exciting activities suited to our smaller Playschemers.  They are always in the same group together throughout the week.

Major League

For ages 8-11 this is our largest division and has a variety of trips and activities that Playschemers can choose from each day so they may not stay with the same group all the time. 


Our oldest age group is for 12-14 and has a more mature approach with many of the same activities as Major League but also their own space away from the younger Playschemers
