Our after school club bubbles with excitement, the site affords tremendous play opportunities: pottery, a crazy cafe, dressing up, wood workshop, forge, zip wires, climbing nets and even a hot bath! Built up since 2012, our garden offers something for all, with enough space to join in with big group play or find a quiet spot to chill. Children are supported in freely choosing their play and additional activities are offered to develop special interests. Activities range from arty and makey, to physical and adventurous, from relaxing and calming to challenging and high energy. We offer some activities on an ongoing basis and bring in new ones to keep it fresh.
