Holiday Club.

There are areas of development that the government expect children to be supported in.

These prime areas include; Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development Communication and Language Development, Specific areas Include: Maths, Creative Learning, Expressive Art and Design, Understanding of the World and Literacy.

We as practitioners will incorporate all of these areas of learning into each child’s daily routine, giving each child the opportunity to develop in every area at their pace.

At Apple Daycare we believe, during the holiday season, the most important thing for young people is: Personal Social, Emotional Development and Physical Development.

Although we incorporate all of the other areas of learning. We tailor our activities for holiday club to life outside. Building camps, orienteering, outside games and sports, visits to local parks and woodland walks, Fishing, paper boat racing and many more.

We encourage a mixed age group where younger children will learn from and feel valued by the older children and the older children learn empathy and responsibility.

We make sure that all activities are tailored to be age and stage appropriate.
