What can your child(ren) do at Holiday Club?

We aim to offer a friendly, homely atmosphere where children can choose what they want to do/play with: both outside/inside and from a wide selection of resources and play opportunities on offer daily.
 

These freeplay activities are supplemented by Adult-Led Workshops (cooking/art/crafts/science/music), which children can choose to join in with (or not). In addition, older children, (from 8yrs) are offered extra activities, with the chance to do something different away from the main group and challenge themselves in fun and exciting ways (e.g. swimming/Freedog/climbing/caving/kayaking).
 

Please note: these activities have a small additional charge and need to be requested at the time of booking.
 

Every Wednesday, the whole group goes out together on a day trip (travelling via coach/bus/train). Trips are organised in and around the locality and incur an additional charge.

All adult-led workshops, trips and 8+ activities are detailed in the Programme of Activities (below).

 

Within the hall, areas are divided up to offer a wide selection of resources and play opportunities for children (of all ages) to choose from, to include:

 

  • A Creative Play area: paint/dough/clay/sand/water/junk modelling

  • Arts & Craft table: paper/pens/stencils/stampers/assorted craft materials (e.g tissue/glitter/pipe cleaners)

  • Construction: Lego/K-Nex/‘Ello/building blocks/marble run/dino rally/Magnetix/train set

  • Small Worlds: farm set/cars & garage/dolls house/Play Mobil/castle playset/dungeons & dragons

  • Role Play: Post Office/Emergency Services/Dressing-Up/Home Corner/Shop (for example)

  • Physical Play: Crash Mats & Springboard/Parachute/Soft Play/Space Bubble/Trampolines 

  • Games Tables: Air Hockey/Football/Table Tennis

  • TV/games consoles 

  • Board Games/Floor Games/Puzzles

  • A quiet area is available with cushions, soft toys and books for children to relax.

  • Outside Play available daily in the covered courtyard adjacent to the hall (open access), with a wide selection of resources (bats/balls/basketball/hoops/swingball/roller-skates/skatebOards/circus set/scooters).

  • The Cotham site has the use of a large field and all weather courts.


 

How about Food & Drink?

Water is available throughout the day onsite, for children to access on a self service basis.
 

Breakfast is served from 8.30-9.30am daily (included in the price). We offer a light tea (toast/wraps/salad/fruit) around 4.30pm (also included in the price).
 

Lunch is 12.30-1.30pm. Please send your child(ren) with a packed lunch.
 

Trip days:

Breakfast is offered before we go and biscuits/fruit at intervals throughout the day. However, it is a good idea to send your child(ren) with additional drinks (or a refillable water bottle) when we are offsite.
 

8+ Activities

We offer extension activities for children aged 8 and up. Offering opportunities for time away from the main group to try a new activity, increase and add to their skill set and maybe try something out they havent done before (in a supervised environment). These activities promote teamwork, confidence, resilience and personal growth. They also offer fun and challenging physical activities to increase health and physical strength.
 

There is an additional charge for these activities (listed), which we subsidise and try to keep as low as possible, to enable as many children as possible to attend.

Feedback is obtained from the children, to choose and plan future activities.
 

..................................................................................
