School Holiday Program

Our Program

We have developed a variety of programs that changes with each school holidays. Some of our programs are designed as a week package, where each day builds on the next. We have organized activities so that a product made on one day will be used on another day. This is necessary for paper making and clay to allow children’s work to dry. Some activities are run independant of each other. To take full advantage of the program, it is best to book a few days. Our external workshop trainers have specialised knowledge in their area and all have working with children checks. We continously research and explore activities to add to the program. We are open to suggestions from the children and parents on what they would like to learn.

We have limited places of 20 children for each craft activities. This creates small groups and children get more attention from the trainers. We have placed age restrictions for certain activities based on the complexity and safety requirements.

Our July school holiday programs have craft activities in the morning, followed by dance in the afternoon.

The July school holiday program will run in the second week, July 11th to 15th 2011.
