Holiday Club – General Information


The Kid’s Club is located in St Mary’s Youth and Community Centre which is accessible via a large car park with it’s own entrance in the heart of St Mary’s. It has excellent facilities for the children to enjoy such as a tennis court, playing fields, a public outdoor playground and a large multi-use indoor sports hall.

Our building is accessible for all. The Club enjoys its own large designated open-plan area within the centre with a central open kitchen, under-floor heating with direct access to the outside areas. 

A variety of activities, toys and resources are provided including arts and crafts, where the emphasis is on self-directed play. We don’t separate children dependant on their year groups, we encourage natural relationships to be formed. The benefits to the children of not being separated far outweigh the added pressure on us!

Currently during the holidays it is only The Kids’ Club who operates out of the centre during the day, giving us more access and freedom of movement.

Our school-aged Holiday Club is currently accommodating between 40 – 65 children.

Securing your child/children’s place

We have now moved onto a new online booking system, MagicBooking.  Giving you control of your bookings, access to your account at anytime and having all your children’s information in one place.  We do not request a booking deposit fee.

We have a handy guide we have created with information on how to create your account, add your child/children and how to book.

The link to the booking system and access to the guide can be found on the top of each page of our website under ‘Bookings’.

Please be aware we can only secure your child/children’s place if the payment plan or payment of outstanding fees is adhered to. 

For our Holiday Club, there is a five day minimum booking notice on our online system. If, however, you require a space on short notice, please do get in touch with us directly.

If you no longer require your place it is your responsibility to cancel your booking, fourteen days prior to the start of your booking, otherwise you will be charged for that place.

Before a child starts at The Kids’ Club we recommend that he/she have an induction period.  (There is no charge for the induction visits).  The first visit will be with one or both parents/carers to view the Club, this will give everyone the opportunity to ask any questions.

The second visit the child can be left for a couple of hours.  A member of the team will be designated to look after them and help him/her settle in.  This will enable them to become familiar with the new surroundings, make new friends and enjoy and participate in the activities.

If you would like to arrange an induction please contact us on 07797 832771 or email
