A new free crèche facility is set to open later this month for shoppers at The Marlowes. Tinies Daycare will offer shoppers two hours of free childcare with any spend over £1 at the centre for children between two and ten years of age.
Launching on 26 October, the new crèche will be open between the hours of 9am-5.30pm Monday to Saturday and 11am-5pm on Sundays, with late hours on a Thursday when the crèche will be open until 7pm. For children aged 2-3 years of age, the crèche will be available from 9am-3pm Monday to Friday during term time only for safety reasons.
Lindsey Doe, Managing Director of Tinies Daycare said: ‘The team at The Marlowes have created a great crèche facility within their dedicated Family Zone. From concept through to design, they have demonstrated their commitment to creating a stimulating environment for their younger guests with impressive attention to detail. We very much look forward to launching the new facility.’
Tinies operates 38 childcare sites across the UK, ranging from crèches, nurseries and holiday camps.
The crèche is the latest development within The Marlowes’ Family Zone which has so far received investment of £1.7m by Capital & Regional, the UK’s leading owner and manager of community retail centres.
Lawrence Hutchings, Chief Executive of Capital & Regional said: ‘Tinies will really enhance our existing Family Zone at The Marlowes, where we aim to provide our guests, parents and children with a memorable experience. Parents can enjoy their shopping or work-out in the gym, knowing their children are in a safe, fun and controlled environment.’
These partnerships are just the beginning of a huge investment into The Marlowes which will see an additional £17m spent over the next 18 to 24 months with continued improvements to its leisure offer, including investment into a new Empire cinema, casual dining options and a food court.
