The Festive Holiday Club provides early years childcare at our Mini-Explorers Garden Venue in Bexley for our usual Preschool Nursery parents and subject to availibility other parents whom regularly use our holiday club services. The 8 days will explore various festive themes from around the world.

Existing customers will be able to choose all the usual session options as per the normal ADO Mini-Explorers timetable - HERE>. Please note lunch will need to be provided for the Festive Club. A packed lunch will be required for your child. Breakfast and After School Club light snacks will be provided for extended session bookings.

Non-Mini Explorer parents will not be able to book individual PM Afternoon or After School PM sessions, unless they are part of an Extended Full Day Session.


Unfortunately due to Ofsted Restrictions on our chosen venues, we can not offer places on the Festive Club this year for Young Explorers (Ages 6 to 7 Years) at our Poets Corner venue. We will be working towards getting Ofsted registered for this barnd new venue for 2018.


The Rangers will be involved in two days of conservation based activities at our Education and Healthcare Centre, Poets Corner, Keats Road, Welling, with the last day ending with some treats and festive carols around a roaring fire.

Our Festive programme is so jam-packed with activities it would take forever to list them all, but for the highlights check out the listings below. Don't forget, you can book any one day, multiple days in any combination.
