 This summer half term, YMCA London South West will be running holiday playschemes in Wimbledon and Kingston for children aged 4 – 11.  Plus, once again Wild Play Days will be taking place out of YMCA Hawker, Kingston, following the successful Easter introduction of this outdoor activity for kids who love to play in the woods.

Running holiday playschemes is something that YMCA London South West is very proud of.  Not only are they giving something to the children, but for busy parents juggling their time, the playschemes are a fantastic childcare solution at great prices.

YMCA has a well-established reputation for providing reliable, good quality care for children that can be booked by the day or for the whole week with early pick up or full-day options.  The playscheme activities are child-led and YMCA LSW tries to mix things up as much as possible, introducing new challenges and stimulating activities that will appeal to all personalities, needs and ages.

“My kids love going to Holiday Club at YMCA London South West,” says mum Lorna. “They enjoy trying out activities that they wouldn’t be able to do at home, and making new friends”.

At YMCA, children are treated as individuals within a safe, supportive and inclusive environment. All staff are passionate about play opportunities and have been DBS checked. The staff to child ratio is 1:8.

YMCA Wild Play Days

YMCA Wild Play Days will run from YMCA Hawker and will visit a different Wild Play space every day to explore woods, build shelters, discover nature, create woodland art and breathe Mother Nature’s good stuff. If your treasured one loves jumping in puddles, climbing trees and is naturally curious, then this is the camp for them.
