Holiday Play

CYPA recognised the need for quality holiday play provisions for children in the Peckham, Camberwell and East Dulwich areas of Southwark.

After seeking advice through community organisations it was agreed that they would organise a Summer Play-scheme. Holiday play schemes enabled parents to have their children looked after across the day for what would be normal school hours ( 9am – 4pm). Parents were able to set their minds at rest, assured that their children were in a safe and stimulating environment.

Children who participate on the scheme benefit from regular activity play sessions along with craft sessions in badge and kite making also swimming and gymnastics classes. Regular outings included Fruit Picking, Go Karting, Roller Skating and trips to the Theatre.

It quickly became clear that the children not only needed quality play provisions but they also needed support with their educational development.

Holiday Play-schemes were directly responsible for the development of After School Classes.
