Festive Holiday Club Programme 2018Festive Holiday Club

The Festive Holiday Club runs for 10 days in December and is packed full of great activities, plenty of festive themed fun and offers parents and carers a brilliant programme of variety and first class child care throughout the lead up to the Christmas Holidays.

(PLEASE NOTE: We are also running an Extended Childcare Club for 3 days on January 2nd, 3rd & 4th for our existing Mini Explorers ONLY - Dates to choose are on the Booking Form or contact the office for help)

Each day we run a completely different programme. No one day is the same! Typical of the time of year our focus is on Festive themes utilising natural resources located on our own sites. We offer crafts, challenges, games and of course our live animals. Our last day is a fun focussed day with themes for the time of year.

Live Animals - We have over 50 species of Live Animals - Get to meet many of them on selected days

Bushcraft - We have many bushcraft activities that are themed to provide children with challenges to learn new skills

Forest School - Using traditional Forest School techniques to interact and learn in the natural outdoor environment
