Our Waterlooville crèche is now open!  


The Crèche at Horizon Leisure Centre’s provides a safe and fun environment for your children aged up to 6 years.  Our Crèche staff hold nationally recognised child care qualifications. Let us look after your children while you exercise or relax with the many activities on offer at Horizon Leisure Centre’s.

Due to limited spaces available, customers wanting to use the crèche facilities are only able to book spaces for their own children and not those of family and friends.

The minimum time a child can stay in the Crèche is 30 minutes the maximum time a child can stay in the Crèche is 90 minutes per day and the parent must be in Horizon Leisure Centre’s for the duration of the child’s stay.

The Crèche is available for all non-members and members. The Crèche is free to Platinum Members subject to availability


If you have two small children and want to take them both swimming or to parent and child swimming lessons our Crèche can help! Our Crèche staff can supervise and change one child while you swim with the other, then swap them over and get the first one changed.


You can book the Crèche over the telephone or via the Horizon app.

You have got this spot on.... couldn't recommend enough.
