What a FANTASTIC success this last Holiday Programme was - so many new faces and activities there was never a dull moment. Thank you for all your prompt bookings, this time around we were booked two weeks out and had to waitlist many families. This makes things much easier in terms of planning because we know how many staff we need and can contact our providers with numbers etc.. Due to absentees we were able to move all waitlist families into the programme, so it is highly unlikely that families will miss out. The next programme will be out in 5 weeks, so keep an eye out time seems to race by!
It was great to see our children all coming in the appropriate gear and with drink bottles etc. Just a note we do have a water filter with cups so bottles can be filled up there and some children choose to drink there instead of out of their bottles. We were lucky with the weather with only a couple of days limiting the time we had where we had to change activities. Next holiday we will need coats for the outdoor weather with winter on its way.
I just wanted to touch base on computers - so everyone understands the system we use. Children are allowed on at 2:30pm not before and then they are given 15 minute blocks so everyone that wants a turn has one, however due to our high number of children this is not likely to be for long. The children love this time when they get it but it is certainly not a main focus and we prefer to offer other alternatives. Unfortunately most parents arrive after this time and may believe that their child has been on the computer too much, but this is certainly not the case.
The ADDI team are always looking to make sure children are getting the best deal and improve where needed, we love feedback and knowing what activities children enjoy and do our best to provide an exciting programme. We will be sending out an email asking for feedback, if you could take the time we would really appreciate hearing your thoughts.
