There is always a choice of activities for the children to choose from, some energetic and some quieter activities. We aim to provide a variety to suit all children.
What should they wear?
There will be physical activity so trainers are best and there will be art and craft activities so your child may get there clothes messy. Please don’t send them in anything that they would be upset about getting dirty.
Are meals included?
Yes, we will provide breakfast and a hot, nutritionally balanced lunch. There will be drinking water available throughout the day.
My child is a picky eater, can they bring a packed lunch?
We understand how picky children can be with their food. They can bring a nutritionally balanced packed lunch but please don’t send them with convenience food such as Pot Noodles.
What time do they have their meals?
Breakfast is available from 8:00-9:30am and lunch is between 12:00 and 1:00pm.
ON THE DAY
Do we have to turn up at 8am?
No, we are flexible on arrival and departure times, but we prefer all children to arrive before the end of breakfast, before the activities begin.
Can my child leave on their own at the end of Holiday Club or do they have to be collected?
Your child can only be allowed to leave on their own if we have prior consent from their parent / carer.
Does my child have to stay for the whole day?
No, your child can leave at anytime but you will pay for a full day.
Can my child stay on for the evening session after Holiday Club?
Unfortunately, we do not allow children to stay on for the evening session if they have attended the holiday club during the day. This can lead to very tired children and an increase in behaviour issues.
Can my child bring their mobile phone?
Yes, they can bring a mobile phone but it needs to be stored in their locker as there will be lots of activities going on and we will need their full attention without the distraction of a phone. We do not accept responsibility if the phone is damaged within our Youth Zone.
My child has medication, how do you manage this?
If your child has prescription medication, please provide it labelled in a clear plastic bag. Please provide written consent for medication to be given with full instructions on dosage.
