May Half Term Holiday Club

We wanted to reflect on how much fun we had at our May Half Term Holiday Club this year!

We hosted a lego competition, we decorated tote bags, did lots of baking and making, the scones were especially nice. When the sun came out we made to most of it and headed to the park for games of football and a good run around. We even had a visit from our favourite ‘Big Gary’ the snail.

A lot of fun was had and it’s always nice to see familiar faces return!

A special shout out to Naomi, Carter and the apprentices who lend their hand to ensuring the Holiday Club runs smoothly, we wouldn’t be able to do this without you!

We can now confirm that the Summer Holiday club will be running from Monday 29th of July to Friday 22nd of August. We will see a return of our HAF programme in these dates, these are to be confirmed imminently, so please keep an eye on our socials for these dates.

Easter Holiday Club 2024

As the Easter holiday’s come to an end, we wanted to reflect on how much fun we had at our Easter Holiday Club this year! We saw a return of our HAF offering for the second week of the holidays and Naomi and the team made sure there were lots of fun activities planned each day.

We had a silent disco, we designed t-shirts, did lots of cooking and baking. When the sun came out we made to most of it and headed to the park for games of football and a good run around. There were also times where we got our brains in gear and tried to become code breakers!

Everyone had a lot of fun, and it’s always nice to see familiar faces return!

We wouldn’t be able to run our holiday club without the help of Naomi, Carter and the apprentices that lend their hand to helping every single day, so thank you!!!!

Keep an eye out on our socials as the plan for the Summer Holidays is coming together nicely. We look forward to seeing you all soon.

Christmas HAF 2023

As a year of our HAF holiday club comes to an end, it is great to reflect on the amazing things our holiday club got up to. Most recently for the Christmas holiday club the children attended the Exeter Panto, the show was Sleeping Beauty. We enjoyed ice cream at the interval and the children thoroughly enjoyed the trip. One child said, ‘This is the BEST day!’

Not only were we very lucky to go to the Panto, in the same week we ventured to the cinema to watch the film Disney Wish. This trip, again, was a fantastic outing and very much enjoyed.

Aside from the trips, the fun didn’t stop when they returned to the club, the children made wreaths, gingerbread houses, made their own Christmas crackers and baked sausage rolls and yule logs!

At the end of the HAF children’s booking, we were able to hand out boxes of fresh produce and hampers full of Christmassy goodies!

The Christmas club topped off a great year for our HAF programme, the children still spoke about our trips to the Zoo, Bicton Park and The Donkey Sanctuary we were able to offer in the Summer.

In 2023 Puffins have loved being part of the Holiday Activities and Food programme, we have enjoyed welcoming new families and making some lasting memories all round!

We hope to remain a HAF childcare provider in 2024 and continuing the thriving club!
