Children's Summer Holiday Activities

by Linda Philo

Poster advertising summer activities

We are very pleased to announce that Crich Patients’ Participation Group in partnership with Premier Education and other providers are looking to host Summer Holiday Activities for children in Crich and the surrounding areas.

At present this is only an idea, and we are looking at accessing funding to make it more financially viable for parents. Whether the activities will run or not is dependent on whether we can access the funding and sufficient interest from parents.

We are very aware of the impact Covid19 and the school closures have had on many children, and feel that this provides a great opportunity for children to engage with other children and increase their confidence, social skills, fitness and general wellbeing before they return to school in September.

Although most of the activities will be held in Crich we are eager to welcome children from surrounding villages; for example, South Wingfield, Fritchley, Whatstandwell, Lea, Holloway and Dethick.

In addition to the Holiday Club being hosted by Premier Education there will also be some ad hoc activities for families during these weeks which will include things like sports, games, story telling, gardening, forest schools and more.

Confirmation of activities, days and times will be announced here on the Crich Standard website and Facebook page as soon as we have them so please keep checking back.

Premier Education Holiday Club

The Premier Education holiday club will run during the weeks commencing 17th and 24th August. The club will be held in Crich at the Glebe Field Centre. It will run from 9.00 – 3.30 Monday to Friday and will be open to children aged 5 – 13 (Years 1 – 8).

If we are successful in accessing funding then the cost of the club will be £5 PER FAMILY per day or £20 for the entire week. This effectively means for families with more than one child, that after the first child all siblings are completely free.

The holiday club will not be solely sport focused with opportunities to take part in dance and drama, art and crafts, games and much more.

It will operate on a ‘bubble’ basis as schools have done, on lower coach:child ratios than normal (1:15). Bubbles will be organised each week and children will be grouped based on ages.

As it will be operating on a bubble basis, once a bubble has been created and reached its capacity of 15 children they cannot introduce new children to the bubble for health and safety reasons. Therefore we will require children to attend a minimum of 3 days in any one week. Though there is no requirement to attend both weeks, children are of course more than welcome to attend both weeks.

As the holiday club is only a proposal at this stage we are very much looking for feedback from parents who would access this opportunity for their children so that we can get an idea of viability. If you would be interested in your child(ren) attending this please register your expression of interest by emailing James Jennison on the contact email below. When doing so please include the number of children, age of child(ren) and number of days you would like your child(ren) to attend.

If you have any further questions about this please don’t hesitate to contact James on the email address below.
