Each day we offer a varied program of engaging activities. This program varies from day to day to suit the ages, abilities, and interests of the children on site.

All activities are run in relation to their suitability in relation to the time of year and the environment.

Each morning once you have dropped the children off, you will be able to see the plan for their day on their bubbles activity board.


Administering medicine

If your child requires any prescription medication whilst attending camp we will need you to complete an Administration of Medicine form. You can find the Administration of Medicine form here so please complete this and bring it with you on your child’s first day.

If you are unable to complete and print a form to bring with you, we will ask you to do this on your child’s first day when arriving at sign in.

We require one form per medication.

No Nuts

We are a nut-free site which means we are unable to allow ANY nuts or food products containing nuts on-site. Please refrain from sending any such products in your children’s lunch or snack as they will be removed.

Please note, we are unable to provide any form of one-to-one support for individuals. If your child/ren requires one-to-one support or is deemed to require constant support by the on-site manager, you will be contacted to collect your child/ren.

Government guidance

The government have also published guidance for parents attending childcare settings. You can find this here.
