Early Years Crazy Kids' Club
Games and activities for children aged 4 and 5 that are not yet in Year 1
Our Early Years Crazy Kids' Clubs focus on fun, being active and inclusivity. Our sessions are structured and activities are adult led. Whilst no child is forced to take part in an adult led activity, they are encouraged to do so and each event is imaginatively designed for younger children. Our Early Years Group Leaders are our most experienced staff and they use a variety of differentiation methods to support children to take part in these progressive activities.
Please contact us if you would like more information regarding the outline of the day, how your child will be supported, or if you would like access to any of our policies or procedures.
Take a look below at some of the activities your child will get to know and love whilst they spend time with us.

Angry Gorillas - Gorillas don't want to be locked up in the zoo, so they throw their bananas at the zookeepers as revenge.
