what should my child bring:

We are proud to provide programmes that are all inclusive.

The only thing your child will need for this programme, each week, is appropriate clothing – so for the pottery lessons we recommend clothes that they don’t mind getting clay onto and for the helicopter ride session we recommend clothing appropriate for the weather on the day.

My child can only come for a couple of dates, can we pay for the ones they only attend?

We hope your child could attend all sessions as they all are different and exciting. The programme is a one off cost and not weekly and there will not be any refund for missed dates – due to programme costs.
