Holiday Club

Little Wild Tribe is delighted to announce the event you have all been waiting for… the CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY SPECIAL! For children of primary school age (5 to 9), this one-off holiday club session will provide lucky children with an idyllic opportunity to spend a day during the Christmas holidays great outdoors; to explore, to play, be active, be curious and have fun! Space for this one-off Christmas holiday session is limited so book early to avoid disappointment.

Why outside?

Too many children have spent too much time this year cooped up. With children back at school, school in the new world is now a very sedentary place – with children expected to sit at their desks for far longer than normal. In the current government guidance, holiday clubs for children are still allowed to proceed so we have decided to run a Christmas special event because children need active play in nature now more than ever before!

Whilst the scientific research so far has demonstrated that COVID transmission rates are much lower outside due to normal breezes and air currents, the benefits don’t just stop there. Not only does direct exposure to UV via sunlight help to kill the virus on surfaces more quickly, it is a well-documented fact that children who learn outside are more curious, stimulated, healthy, engaged and active. Research shows that the more time children spend in nature, the better their mental health outcomes, and with the concerns around COVID19, the great outdoors is the safest place to be! Not only is outdoor play central to children’s enjoyment of childhood, it teaches critical life skills, builds confidence and self-esteem as well as enhancing growth and development. Recent studies have even found being outside stimulates learning, improving concentration and cognitive processing and even academic test scores!

So, what are you waiting for?

Running on Monday 21st December (10am-2pm), this session will provide children with an active, safe and healthy holiday club in the fresh air and amongst the rustling trees. Children will get the opportunity to try a whole range of festive fun activities – from slacklining and den building to campfire cooking… but most importantly, they will have time to feel wild and free and to make new friends, safely.

Please note that this is a holiday club so children cannot be accompanied by parents.

But is it safe?

As always, Little Wild Tribe takes the safety of our children and staff extremely seriously. We have carefully conducted a range of risk assessments as part of a thorough due diligence procedure so that sensible yet comprehensive infection control measures can be put into place to control the risks associated with COVID-19 for both children, parents and staff. A summary of the protective measures we have taken in light of the coronavirus can be found here. We will continue to review the government guidance relating to educational and childcare settings as they are updated to ensure a safe and secure environment for all children, parents and staff.

The risk-free small print

Please note that as part of the safety measures we have put in place, spaces will be limited and on a first-come, first-served basis so book early to avoid disappointment! Please also rest assured that all bookings are risk-free if we are unable to run the holiday club due to a change of government guidance – a full refund will be applied to any bookings made in these circumstances.
