Big fun for small people

For children aged 5 -7 years, we have developed a specific activity programme that’s going to be delivered by an Early Years practitioner and a children’s fitness instructor. The children are well looked after, with 1 member of staff for a maximum of 8 children. The structured sessions will begin at 9.15am,  drop off will be available from 8.00am, structured sessions will end at 16.45pm, pick up available up to 17.45pm. During these times outside of the structured sessions the children will be free play and supervised by staff.
 

Variety and their own pace

The 5 to 7 years old camp will run as separate to the older children with their own space and equipment that’s tailored to their needs. We know our younger age group like to have fun and try new things, but we also know they need more down-time to rebuild their energy reserves. The timetable alternates between energetic and quieter activities, with the emphasis on stimulating them through variety.
