Holiday Clubs 2022
We are back running GREAT FUN, HOLIDAY CLUBS providing the same EXCELLENT childcare as we have done for the last 16 years but now during the holidays & at the prestigious Christ Church School in Chorleywood. We look forward to taking care of children from ALL schools.
The feeling of the Holiday Club will be NURTURING & STIMULATING Child CARE with an OUTDOOR THEME. When the weather allows we will get the children outside. This is purposefully NOT your large full on Sports Activity Club; we will be SMALL & INTIMATE aimed at 4 (or slightly younger ***) to 10 year olds.
We will also feed the children a NUTRITIOUS BREAKFAST & NOURISHING HOT TEA**. We know well fed children are happy with good behaviours. We think one packed lunch between 9am to 5.30pm is not enough food for small active bodies.
We will keep employing the same wonderful, experienced, caring team members as we know a familiar face is always reassuring. We will try to operate at a ratio of just 1 adult to 8 children as we fervently believe this is VITAL to providing great child CARE. And Pippa will always be onsite as being with the children is the bit she truly loves.
We very recently been inspected BY OFSTED. We are delighted with the charming report. Click here to read it.
PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT OUR PHOTOS AT THE BOTTOM TO SEE THE FUN WE HAVE .....
*** Children need to be able to independently take care of themselves : We will expect all children in our care to be toilet trained, able to feed themselves & able to dress themselves.

WHAT IS THE STRUCTURE OF THE DAY?
We will be open 8 am to 5.30 pm split into three sessions. WHY? We want to try to suit three different types of busy families :-
Parents who need a FULL DAY from the start to the end of the day.
Parents who only need an EXTRA COUPLE of hours either side of the main part of the day.
Parents who only need the main part in the middle of the day.
Hence we will be offering :-
a) Sunrise Breakfast Club 8 am to 10 am - With a Nutritious 😋 Breakfast** (see above) served around 9am.
b) Sunshine Daytime Club 10 am to 3 pm - Children bringing their own packed lunches 🥪🍎🧃
c) Sunset Tea Club 3 pm to 5.30 pm - With a Nourishing 😋 HOT tea** (see above) served around 4pm - Mug hot chocolate served at 4.30 pm in front of a film with children sitting on bean bags together
We will be open Monday to Thursday (to give the children a long three day weekend). Hence we not be open on Fridays.
HOW ARE WE GOING TO ENTERTAIN THE CHILDREN?
As you know, our philosophy is 'Busy Children are Happy Children' so we intend to keep the children engaged in fun pursuits.
We will have many different types of activities on offer each day so there will be always a good VARIETY so all the children whatever their age will find something they enjoy - We will have a Come & Make Corner 🎨, Messy Play Zone 🦹, Board Game City 🎲, Jigsaw Puzzle Arena 🧩, Imaginative Role Play with Dressing Up Area 🎭 🏴☠️ 👑, Build & Construction Site 👷♀️👷♂️ etc
During the Sunshine Daytime Club we will have some exciting group games ⚽️ 🎾🏏🏓🎯🛴 🏸 (e.g. parachute games, team games, children’s party games, etc etc) & we will also have a moment in nature 🌳🐾 🧭 in the local common & woodlands (e.g. treasure hunts, nature trails, scavenger hunts, simple orienteering etc etc).
