Holiday Activities

 

Easter Holidays 2019 
Easter is early this year with the school holidays starting on the 8th April and ending with the Easter weekend.

Hampshire Schools go back on Tuesday 22nd April

So, we are planning fun filled sessions with all things Easter themed from hunts, rabbits, eggs, and delicious goodies of all descriptions, with a healthy dose of curiosity thrown in!

Wednesdays remain our cookery days for all ages, whilst we will be exploring our Easter theme with a variety of arts and crafts on all other dates.

Easter Teen Tuesdays will be cookery and textiles based.

and .. we have the lovely B Random running two day workshops for the creative writers amongst you!

B is a local author who will be asking the children to bring one of her illustrations, Ralph, to life!

Get curious and answer some fabulous questions as you build your own story.How does Ralph smell, how does it walk and communicate? Does Ralph follow the rules of gravity or science? If Ralph has special powers, what could it do? Does Ralph have a secret? Enjoy your time with Ralph and come back again to create further adventures!

 

So,why not join us for curiously creative weeks of arts and cookery activities…

For boys and girls aged 4 upwards daily, or Teen Tuesdays for 10 – 16 year old’s each week.

Our popular classes build arts, crafts and cookery skills in a fun and safe setting with experienced artists and tutors.

£17 a day for the main activity from 10am till 3pm and the chance of wrap around care from 9am till 10am, or from 3pm till 5pm at £3 per hour.

£22 per day for all cookery sessions and Teen Tuesdays as these include extra ingredients.

 

This is childcare with a creative focus

 

Booking policy
In order to keep our activities at an affordable, and accessible, rate for all, we operate the following booking policy.
1. We require advance payment on booking for all classes and are unable to reserve places without payment.
2. Materials and resources are bought to match the number of people booked onto the course. As a result we cannot guarantee places will be available on the day unless pre-booked. Please always phone to check.
3. In the event of a customer choosing to cancel their course a refund cannot be given, nor payment swapped to another session, unless the course is full and we can fill the space.
4. Should the d.@rt Centre have to cancel a workshop you have booked onto, an alternative workshop or date will be offered. Where this is not possible or acceptable to you, a full refund will be paid.

 Summer Holidays

All days are available to book now for those of you who like to be very organised. We are waiting until April to find out whether we will be able to run our regular cookery Wednesdays as the block the cookery rooms are in may be undergoing a refurbishment. If we are unable to run the cookery sessions we will be offering another day of arts and crafts on Wednesdays instead.

We are also hosting a number of summer camps here over the summer holiday including

Codepod

Hamphire Music Service Musical weeks

Platform Dance Company

StageKidz 

Week 1.  29th July to 2nd August 

The Mystery of the Blue Room part 2.  If you enjoy the idea of escape room style puzzles, code breaking, and problem solving, then this is the week for you. All of our activities will have an artistic slant, and if you join us for the full week you will be able to help us to solve another  Mystery of The Blue Room!  This is an excellent week of activities for children who are curious and like to find things out.   Activities will be aimed at detectives of all ages.
