This is the second time we’ve used the Clopton Nursery for their school holiday club. They were one of the few places open over the Christmas break.
The holiday club is held next to Thomas Jolyffe School on Clopton Road, so very handy for workers in town like myself. They take kids from age 2 to 12 and you don’t have to be registered or attend the school to use it. Another bonus is that drop off at 8am and pick up is 6pm.
The new Nursery Manager has put in a number of improvements, including a weekly theme. The February half term theme was “Inventors” with a variety of activities running throughout the week.
So “what do you get when you cross a CD, with a Fruitshoot lid and a balloon?”
A hovercraft of course! The boys excitedly demonstrated the fruits of their labours at pick-up time. Blow up the balloon and release it. Watch with amazement as the CD glides across the table – absolute genius!
There’s the large main room set up with arts & crafts and tonnes of toys and games. Plus there’s a side room with soft play and cosy seating for movie time. They’re very well equipped to entertain kids of all ages.
The staff told me that in warmer weather they have access to the large school field at the rear too, which will be great for our active boys to run off some steam.
Whilst breakfast and snacks are provided, kids need to take a packed lunch and water bottle.
The staff are warm and welcoming and the boys clearly have had a brilliant time – we’ll be back!
