Holiday Playscheme

We run a holiday playscheme for children from Church Hill and Low Hall, and for local children aged 3 to 8 years. This takes place at Church Hill.

These are the holidays, and we want to make them special. Each day we set out a wide range of stimulating and fun play activities which are suitable for their different ages. We plan our activities around learning goals within the early year’s foundation stage and national curriculum used in the nurseries and schools across the country.

FAQs

Arriving

Pick up

  • the latest pick-up time is 6pm, or 4pm at Christmas, or you can pick up a little earlier if you would like.
  • don’t be late: if you are, our staff can’t go home to their own families, and you will be charged extra.

Food
