Activities and games are provided for children aged between 3 and 8 years. All activities are supervised. Activities include: BUILDING BLOCKS, LEGO, K-NEX, CARS, ACTION MAN, DOLLS, COLOURING/DRAWING, along with a wide selection of BOARD GAMES.

We have use of the nursery playground and the outdoor facilities. Outdoor activities are organised every day (weather permitting!). Outdoor games include ‘Grandma’s Footsteps’, ‘What’s the time Mr Wolf?’, ‘Chinese Waters’ and ‘Run Across’. When the weather is nice, we try to spend as much time outside as we can. All parents are requested to supply sun-cream for their child if it is sunny.

On most Fridays we have a “Wheels Day” (unless it’s icy). This is a chance to bring in any outdoor wheeled toy (bike, scooter, skate board, sleighs , doll’s pram), which can then be used on the playground during the day.


Every holiday, there is a new programme for the holiday club, with new fun activities including craft, games and stories. Past programmes have included ‘Chinese New Year’, ‘The farm’ and ‘The Olympics’.


Trips out are sometimes arranged, which fit in with our theme. Recent trips have involved a trip to Sheldon Country Farm and the Parkridge Centre in Brueton Park.

If you are interested, please contact us to request a registration form.

N.B. If you need holiday care for a three year old we may be able to offer a place at Playpals Nursery, where the equipment and activities are more suitable for that age. We may also be able to accommodate older siblings there if required.
