Junior & Intermediate Sessions

Junior youth sessions run weekly on Wednesdays, 5-7pm for children age 5-9yrs.

 

Intermediate youth sessions run weekly on Mondays, 5-7pm for children age 10-13yrs. 

 

Each session is run by a team of qualified, experienced play and youth workers.

 

Activities are designed and delivered to ensure that young people can participate in a range of activities that ensure they are ‘literate for life’ by arranging our programme around our 5 key themes.

 

We offer educational support, social and emotinal development, play and physical opportunities as well as cultural and creative activities.

 

There are a variety of activities to suit any children's interests.

 

During the warmer months we encourage the children to play outside in our natural play space. Our qualified forest school practitioner will run additional activities of cooking on a fire and outdoor learning on Saturdays.

 

Subject to successful applications we run holiday play schemes, organise local trips and offer meals at each session supporting children to access free nutritional meals and snacks at every session.
