At Ashlands we are excited to offer 48 weeks opening for nursery and reception age children.
The Early Years Holiday Club is open from 8.00am – 5.15pm and is run by Ashlands staff, led by Miss Smith and Miss Naylor.
The Christmas Holiday Club will be open Monday 18th December – Friday 22nd December and also on Tuesday 2nd January 2024.
The children have fun taking part in a wide range of activities that change throughout the year. They get messy creating seasonally themed arts and crafts, they bake, they listen to stories and enjoy making music and singing.
At Holiday Club the children are encouraged to play outside whatever the weather and in the warmer months they are able to use the field for play, outdoor learning and picnics. We have a wonderful outdoor classroom and garden where the children get involved in planting fruit and vegetables, pond dipping and spotting our regular bird, insect and butterfly visitors. We even have our very own beehives!
