2025 dates released!
We’re all cut from different cloths. Some of us like to fly by the seat of our pants, others have colour-coded diaries planned with military precision.
Whichever camp you sit in, we thought it would be useful to have all the dates for POD and Holiday Club in one place!

POD remains open throughout, but our creative themes will change with each term. If you have a POD Preschooler looking for non-term time childcare or just want your child to experience new things, you may want to try Holiday Club.

Fill your boots!
