The Children's Centre Holiday Playschemes and Adam Osborne Adventure Evenings


Gissing Children's Centre's Holiday Playschemes for primary school age children (4-11 years) offer a wide range of inspiring activity days during school holidays.  Children can take part in a selection of craft, art-based and cookery workshops, football and multi-skills activities, construction play, as well as an increasing range of Forest School type experiences using the adjacent woodland.   Playschemes are a good opportunity for children from a large number of local primary schools to get to know each other and mix on a social basis.   Playschemes are staffed largely by regular known and experienced volunteers, overseen by a small number of Children's Centre staff.   A small number of young helpers (14-18 years) are also part of the team giving them valuable volunteering experience.
