Summer Holiday Bookings – LIVE

For the first time, we are running Holiday Programmes before Christmas, because of the gap between when schools finish and the Christmas Break. We will then be running for the two final weeks of January.

If you plan on applying for the OSCAR SUBSIDY, please do so asap, as it helps the paperwork from our end too. If you have any questions about finance, email: or any generic questions about holiday programmes, email Shelly at:

We only take ONLINE registrations, so please log-in with your usual email and password and choose the dates you want! If you’ve not logged in before, click ‘New Parent’ and go through the process, before making a Booking for your chosen child.



Change of Policy: In order to be fair to those who need childcare for the whole week, we won’t be confirming any single day bookings until Friday 4th December. This is in response to some people just booking the special outing days, and others missing out on the full week of childcare they need, and only able to attend on ‘in’ days. We value the relationships and trust we’re able to build over the week, and place priority on leader/young people connections. Please contact us if you have exceptional circumstances.
