Have you booked in yet?
We have some amazing activities planned, including a trip to Laygo for our main group, while the over 8’s can choose to go to Laygo or attend a lunch at Club Marion (no chicken nuggets & chips, menu items include items like arancini balls, salt & pepper squid, garlic prawns, wraps, and more).
We are looking forward to making our own puppets (there will be a variety of types to make), the OSHC Olympics, designing your own Temporary Tattoo and more.
The over 8’s only program includes a Wheels Day (Mon 23rd), Robotics, Gardening and a Master Class in Drawing.
On top of this, we will have available the everyday activities, such as looking after the pets, lego, construction toys, puzzles, games, Wii U, chill out zones, cooking, and so on.
Are you worried your child will get lost in amongst the large group? There is no need to be concerned, we separate the larger group into smaller groups (of 8-16 children), so we can maintain our family feel and ensure all children’s voices are heard. At the beginning of the day we have a “morning meeting” run by the children, which is when they choose which group to be in. Each group will have special conditions that need to be met, such as no siblings, over 8’s only, equal number of boys and girls or something similar. Each group is also assigned a responsibility for the day, such as preparing afternoon tea, setting up an activity, preparing for an excursion or the like. Once the group is set up, the children decide what their group will do and when. They may choose to spend the first half hour outside, they may decide to have lunch early and allow more time for an activity, it is completely up to them. With this set up, the children decide how their day will unfold, who to spend it with, but also use important communication and problem solving skills and take on responsibilities for the benefit of the whole group. A similar set up is used for excursions too, but in that case I (often with the children’s help) decide on who is in each group, based on the needs/age of the children, the needs of the venue, friendship groups and so on.
Bookings are filling up fast, but spaces are still currently available, so make sure you book in early to secure your child/rens places.
As usual, all activities, excursions, breakfast, morning tea, afternoon tea, toothbrush packs and a hat will be supplied. All the children need to bring is their lunch and a drink bottle.
