This year, we’re making some changes to the time, structure and pricing of our popular Kids Takeover Camps – extending the standard day and changing the format of the wraparound sessions to make them more convenient for working parents.
We’re also updating the pricing structure to reflect the changes. The new changes are being introduced from February half term 2019, and will apply to all activity camps.
Here’s what’s happening:
The New Timetable
We’re extending the main Kids Takeover Camp sessions by two hours.
The new sessions will run from 9.30am – 4.30pm each day, instead of 10.30am – 3.30pm.
In addition, the wraparound care timetable is changing. Instead of two separate sessions (8am – 10.30am and 3.30pm – 6pm) wraparound care will now be available as a single package, and will extend the day to 8am – 5.30pm.
Updated 2019 Pricing
The pricing structure is also changing.
To reflect the longer day, main sessions will now be £16 per day (up from £12). Wraparound care will be £8 per day (instead of £6 for each wraparound session).
For a full day with wraparound care, the price of a day will remain the same, at £24 per day.
The Membership Discount Club will remain unchanged.
Why we’re changing
The primary reason behind the change is to make the programme more flexible, for the benefit of working families. We’ve listened to your feedback, and understand that the previous timetable simply didn’t fit in to the average working day for many parents.
The new extended timetable is designed so that fewer parents need to book wraparound care – providing more flexibility, and solving a common headache in the holidays. For those that do want an earlier drop off / later pick up, we’ve streamlined the wraparound care into a single session to make things simpler.
The second reason for extending the day is so that we’ve got extra time to run more activities with the kids. Those extra two hours open up a number of opportunities to extend the programme and the types of activity we can offer throughout the day.
Kids Takeover Camps for 2019
Apart from these changes, everything else will remain the same!
We’ll still be keeping children entertained and safe during the school holidays at a fraction of the price of childcare – providing jam-packed, varied days to keep them active and busy whilst you’re at work.
