Our nursery-style Playtime programme combines exceptional care with a whole host of fun interactive activities; encouraging 3 to 4-year-olds to explore and learn in a safe and happy environment. The programme is designed to offer a mix of stimulating and relaxing activities in a completely safe and secure setting. Energetic play, like bouncy castles, is mixed with quieter times, like storytelling. Your little ones will come home energised and feeling wonderful.
We are proud to present our re-designed programme, crafted by industry experts who also work with Disney. Some of the exciting new activities for our Playtime group include:
Learning outcomes are thread through our Playtime programme, and tailored to the developmental needs of our youngest campers; with links to the EYFS and OFSTED frameworks. Learning is structured from the beginning to the end of the day as follows:
P – Prepare for Day: A game to get to know one another and settle in with our Spinning Board Activity (which is a fun ice-breaker where children get to spin the wheel to choose their first activity)
L – Let’s Get Active: Active games get children moving and improving their physical abilities.
A – Act it Out: These activities give children the chance to role play and imagine.
Y – You Do It: Child-led free playtime such as soft play to release some energy
T – Teaching Time: Activities stem from EYFS, and children learn a new skill.
I – Interactive Stories: During these sessions, children get to join in with stories, songs and music.
M – Make a Memory: Much-loved creative activities which include creating an item to take home.
E – End of Day: A review of the activities done that day with a reminder of what they have learned.

From the moment children arrive, there’s a smiling friendly face waiting for them. Playtime is managed by an experienced Early Years Manager and our team of Early Years Leaders.
Personal interaction is key and the staff are selected not only for their qualifications but their nature and sensitivity towards younger children. Staff to child ratio of 1:8 is observed at all times.
Please note children must be dry and out of nappies to take part in our Playtime programme.
To avoid home clothes getting muddy or worn, we offer camp hoodies, t-shirts, baseball caps, a camp rucksack, water bottles and wristbands.
"Our 5 year old can be shy and unwilling to try new things but we were delighted with how he skipped in to camp every day."
