The Ladybird Holiday Club is open to children from the age of 3 years to 7 years and is one of the few holiday schemes catering for both pre-school and school aged children.

We are very fortunate to be able to benefit from Russell Lower School’s infrastructure, which includes vast outdoor areas such as the playing field, large tarmac area (suitable for bikes & scooters) and the Trim Trail.
Within the building we have two classrooms where we set up activities for the different age groups – 3 – 5 years and 5 – 7 years. The children are also able to make use of our outdoor area, which is covered by our canopy structures providing a large shaded area in front of the portacabin.
During the Holiday Club we offer different themed activities for each individual day. Indoor activities include games, role-play, arts & crafts, cookery, show & tell, music, dancing, construction and much more. Outdoor activities include sports, submarine, birdwatching-house, water play, sand play, gardening club, obstacle course, parachute play, painting sessions and much more.
We also run a ‘themed party’ at each of our Holiday Clubs – usually the Thursday of each week (2nd week in the Summer Holiday Club).
The ‘Holiday Club’ is run on a ‘first-come – first-served’ basis. 
Our sessions run Monday to Friday as follows:
Morning 9.00am to 12.00pm
Afternoon 1.00pm to 4.00pm
‘Lunch Club’ 12.00pm to 1.00pm
Our Holiday Clubs run during the October half-term, February half-term, the first week of the Easter holidays and the first three (full) weeks of the Summer holidays.

Please sign your child ‘in’ in the book, provided by the entrance.
If your child attends the Lunch Club, please hand your named child’s lunch box to the member of staff ‘on duty’.
Please inform the member of staff if anyone, other than yourself, will be collecting your child at the end of the Holiday Club session, and write these arrangements in the last column next to your child’s name in the ‘signing-in book’. Please also let the person collecting your child know the ‘ password’ you will have put on your child’s Holiday Club Permission Form.
We operate a password system for collecting your child. If we do NOT know the person collecting your child, she/he will need to inform us of your chosen password when picking your child up.
