February Play Scheme

At Mary’s Play Scheme, your children will have an action-packed, enjoyable time which they will want to return to. Here, playschemes are for children between the ages of 6 and 12 years old. The core opening hrs are 9 AM – 5 PM. Parents can buy extend the time from 8.30 till 5.30 PM. We will have trips away to local parks during this playscheme. All children in the group would be expected to go on the trip which will be within walking distance. The groups will be no more than 15 children.

Play scheme

The words ‘school holidays’ can fill many parents with dread – especially if they are working. But these are times that children should look forward to as a period when they can draw breath and take a break from the often very competitive academic life they face at school and ‘just’ play.
