Holiday Kids' Clubs in Bristol Summer 2018

Holiday Kids Clubs - great way to break up the 6 weeks school Summer holidays
Ensuring our kids still get the company of their peers and 
lots of activity in a formal secure, yet fun setting throughout
You don't even need to be a working parent
You might just want a few days out where kids can be kids and adults can be adults
When you reconnect afterwards you'll both have a renewed spirit and
be happy to share with each other what you all got up to. 

The first time we dropped Aaron at a holiday club Lottie was sad to say goodbye
but he had so much more time for her at the end of each day
when he'd had time away with kids his own age. 
Of course it also meant I could focus on Lottie one-to-one
which she loves like when he's at regular school.

The trouble with the school Summer holidays is most of your extra-curricular evening hobbies break up for the Summer too just like school. I know all of Lottie's toddler play and stay groups do. With Aaron though, we're very lucky in that our Football Club training and our BMX Club classes carry on throughout. But it can be a long six weeks with no school and no formal structured activities.

We ourselves tried Bristol's Premier Camps in February and Aaron loved it - he made great friends and took part in gymnastics, football, archery, fencing and Nerf Gun wars over two days even coming away with a certificate. When he was in nursery when I went back to work just before he turned one, childcare was circa 50GBP a day, so I was pleasantly surprised to find Premier Education holiday camp from only 15.95 GBP a day (cheaper or dearer depending on the amount of notice given and whether booked on or offline. Book online before you attend, to guarantee a place and the cheapest price. There is a mobile phone contact for each Premier course and the phone is answered by a very personable and informed team member who will give you the exact advice you require. If you do a course local to home you may well find your child knows a few people there.

Premier Camps!Everyone is invited to join the fun.

Inspire to Engage is Premier Sport’s brand new holiday course initiative. Your children will keep busy and active with a huge variety of activities and sports for them to enjoy during the school holiday. The fun environment on our holiday courses means they mix with loads of children of their own age, get active and most importantly have fun.

The programme is accessible across all age groups and abilities. It ensures your children have fun with friends, at the same time learning the importance of living a healthy and active lifestyle. The programme helps your child improve their communication skills, build their self-confidence and develop valuable social skills.

It’s a fantastic, healthy, way for kids to get out of the house. Kids love being active and of course it’s cool being with friends. The usual verdict is "it was brilliant!"

  1. We've not tried kids clubs yet. I was ALWAYS sent to them during summer holidays as a child, even if only for a few days each summer. It's really hard here, as like you, the regular clubs and toddler classes etc break up over the summer holidays and throw our schedules out of whack!
