In the October half-term, we will be offering the
exciting and adventurous Childcare Scheme here at LOPC. We need to comply with
current covid-19 regulations, so there are a few things that may be
The booking calendar is at the bottom of this page.
We are unable to offer Breakfast Club, with drop off from 09:00 - 09:25. Sessions will begin at their usual time of 09:30.
Parents/Legal Guardians need to provide a packed lunch, snacks, appropriate weather covering (sun hat, t-shirt with sleeves, fleeces, waterproof trousers), a large water bottle/plenty of drinks, sun cream and a full set of spare clothing.
Please see the kit list for further information.
The sessions will finish at 16:00. Pick up will be from 16:00 - 16:30.
Children will remain with their group for the full day. Until guidance is changed, groups will run with one instructor and a maximum of five children. We do hope to increase this back up to 8-10 in time for October.
In previous Schemes we have allowed group changes, availability permitting, on the morning of attendance. We will not be allowing this, unless in exceptional circumstance and at our discretion.
Children will not be expected to wear face masks or covering, but if they choose to do so they can.
In previous years, we have provided sun cream for children. We are unable to do so at the moment. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to provide sun cream for their child(ren).
Please note that LOPC reserve the right to alter activities and groups at the beginning of the day. We make every effort to stick to the original activity plan, but occasionally we may have to make changes.
Children must be in Year One or above to attend the Holiday Scheme.
As the colder weather approaches please provide your child with plenty of layers including gloves, a packed lunch and plenty of drinks.
PLEASE DRESS YOUR CHILD TO REMAIN OUTDOORS ALL DAY, IN ALL WEATHER
