Children and Young People

Helping children from as young as four. Our short breaks for children and young people are designed to help individuals learn and develop whilst having fun.

As children rapidly grow and develop, we prioritise their individual needs. Our dedicated personal assistants and project leaders are trained to offer attentive care and provide support for your children across our term time, holiday and drop-in short breaks.
