  • The programme is super fun, different each holiday and interesting. My boys love all the different activities, meeting new people and being in a different environment. I love the staff and team who are so good with my boys and totally trustworthy and reliable. – Diana, April 2018
  • The staff are amazing - they are so good with the children – Jo, April 2018
  • Great variety of entertainment for kids. Great exposure and learning while having fun. Good clean environment. Suitable hours for working parents. Very helpful and pleasant staff to interact with. My daughter is 5 years old and this was her first big school holiday. To find a holiday programme where she was happy to go for almost 4 weeks, the majority of them with no friend from school, was going to be a big ask. She looked forward to the events. She even wanted to go on days when we were at home with her. We will be going back there for next holidays. - Komai, Summer 2017/18 holidays
  • The kids had such a blast at this programme and are super keen to return next holidays. They thought the staff were amazing. I love that there’s a choice of activities for each day that you book. - Marina, Summer 2017/18 holidays

  • You run a great programme.  We liked having the options for a clubhouse day or something more adventurous depending on how the kids were feeling.  Staff always said hi and seemed to genuinely enjoy being around the kids, even at the end of a long day!  We liked being able to look at photos on FB with the kids in the evening and see what they had been doing.  Great that you provide afternoon tea.  I like the variety in the activities overall ie. animals, craft, sport, food etc.  I also like that you can book in the day before, so don't need to plan too far ahead - Bridget, Summer 2016/17 holidays
