Childcare Summer Holiday Club Programme 2019Summer Holiday Club

The Childcare Summer Holiday Club runs for 4 Weeks from Monday 5th to Friday 30th August 2019 and is packed full of great activities, plenty of outdoor fun and offers parents and carers a brilliant programme of variety and first class child care throughout the School Summer Holidays. The venue is again at our Mini-Explorers Garden in Bexley.

Each day we run a completely different programme. No one day is the same!
