We aim to provide a fun-filled day in a safe, relaxed, and happy environment. Staff are qualified, caring and work hard to ensure all children feel welcome, valued, safe and secure. We want children to enjoy their holidays whilst joining in with a range of activities and having fun with friends both old and new.

They will participate in a range of activities including a variety of sports and games, arts and crafts, cooking, dance, and drama, as well as many other activities, both on- and off-site to give a balanced, exciting day. Off-site activities are offered throughout each week and are all fully supervised by our team.
