Our holiday club is run by the XYZ After School Club team and based at the Lodge Room at Aboyne Lodge School, Etna Road, St Albans, AL3 5NL. We welcome children from Year R – Year 3 from all local schools, not just those who attend our regular schools – so why not bring a friend? Variety of themed activities, indoor and outdoor games, cooking, competitions, face-painting, and lots more! Small, friendly group – maximum of 24 children- for a safe, home-from-home environment. We provide morning and afternoon snacks, and fresh fruit and drinks are available all day.
Please note a minimum of 12 children per session is required for the session to operate. Should we not reach the required number, a decision whether we will be able to run will be made three weeks prior to the start of the Club. This is to ensure families who have already booked have sufficient time to find alternative arrangements. Early booking is therefore essential. Completed booking forms must be received before places can be confirmed.
