Science based holiday programmes for 5-8 year olds, focusing on hands-on science experiments in a fun and relaxed environment. Little scientists create activities based on our current children attending to really encourage them to participate and engage in science, at their own pace, with their own interests. Of course, it’s not all science! There is a large fully fenced outdoor area for lots of free play or games with a large sandpit, waterslide, monkey bars and fadults to watch over them.
