Holiday Club Registration
Registering for our holiday club and childcare programme is free for all families of children aged up to 7 years of age, who attend term based settings in our local community and whose parents are in need of a childcare provider close to where they work for the half terms and school holiday periods. The Holiday club form requires the same information as our weekend daycare provision
Frequently Asked Questions.
Lots of questions are asked about our short term holiday club and childcare programmes at the school. So here with our attempts to head some of them off at the pass, but please do review our terms and conditions and polices in full
What discounts do you offer?
We offer anything from 5% referral discounts for every family you refer, and 5% sibling discount if another child is already enrolled. we offer up to 50% off for public sector workers, and corporate discounts for local partners under the Workplace Nursery Scheme...
Do I have to do full time?
No you don't! We offer single sessions of five hours in the morning or afternoon through to the maximum of 5 full days, allowing you to cobble together a package of care that suits your needs (depending on availability).
What languages are on offer
We try have bilingual educators from the middle east who speak Arabic, we have those from Scandinavia and Russia, but most of our team are from China and so Mandarin is the core language we offer at the holiday clubs
We only speak one language at home - does that matter?
Not entirely - a child's personality type, how much time you commit, what consistency you apply, how early you start with the immersion programme and what you do at home with apps, games, songs and media will all play a part. It's true that bilinguals who benefit from any combination of languages at home pick up the second language faster but it's not a given monolinguals can't or won't. And besides, the evidence that speaks to the cognitive impact of what we're doing on how their brains will develop because of it is self-evident. Click here to find out more...
Can I try it out before I commit?
Absolutely. With us, we offer a kind of "try before you buy" programme that allows you to incrementally build up your sessions by purchasing single, five hour sessions to help you and your child get used to the idea of us. We did this initially to help parents returning to work from maternity leave with a structured way of gradually giving them additional time for work so that they're ready for a more consistent return, but we've since rolled it out to everyone!
