The Sidcot Holiday Club launched in April 2010 to provide childcare and fun activities for children aged 5 to 11 years. The club is open during every school holiday (excluding Bank Holidays and the week between Christmas and New Year). All children in the local area are welcome to come along, whether or not they attend Sidcot School.
Pre School Sessions
In October 2014 we launched sessions for children aged 3-4 years. These sessions run alongside (but separate to), our main holiday club provision. Due to the care needs of this age group, swimming will not be included in their activity programme.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like further information about these sessions.
At Sidcot Holiday Club we provide a safe environment for children to learn and have fun, whilst also ensuring that they receive excellent care and support from fully qualified staff.
A Day at Sidcot Holiday Club
Children arrive between 8.30am and 9.20am. During this time they have free play as they meet the other children attending that day. At approximately 9.30am, the day begins with welcome and games to help children get to know each other. After a break for a snack* and outdoor play (weather permitting), children are encouraged to take part in the daily activity which will provide entertainment until it is time for lunch*. After lunch, there is outdoor play and/or sports in the Sports Centre before the highlight of each day – an hour swimming in our fantastic swimming pool.
Parents collect their children from 4pm. Late pickup is available at 4.30pm or 5.30pm to cater for the needs of working parents.
We also accept childcare vouchers.
*Please be aware that children will be required to bring two snacks, a drink in a refillable bottle and a packed lunch.
Our daily staffing ratios are at least 1 adult to 8 children. Half of all staff hold a recognised childcare qualification and all our staff are subject to DBS disclosure checks at the Enhanced level.
Each of our free swim and pool party sessions are supervised by qualified lifeguards.
