Summer Holiday Programme will be Starting 14th December 2018

We run programme over the Christmas and all 4 school term holiday’s.  As most children are so busy throughout the term we like to make the holiday time just that… a holiday.  Depending on the children that are booked in and their likes, we run the programme to inspire them, while feeling relaxed and fully rested. 

From time to time I will add an extra flare into the mix with a project of some kind, Movie making, Art and Crafts, dress making and the likes.

Cooking in the morning, serves as there afternoon tea along with a movie and popcorn in their chill out time.

Starts at 9am – 3pm Contact me if you will be needing any extra hours.
