More about Inclusive and Specialist childcare services we offer:

Whippersnappers are very proud to be such a diverse and inclusive organisation. We pride ourselves in offering creative, fun and diverse inclusive and specialist holiday childcare and play scheme settings. Activities on offer across sites include all sorts of creative arts, messy play, sports, performing arts, music and trips out.

Here’s what we were up to in our inclusive and specialist summer play scheme last year:

Our age range is currently from 5 – 15 years however we are hoping this may be extended to 18 in the future. We do offer provision for 16 – 18 year olds when we receive funding for specific projects.

Above we have information about our holiday play scheme provision. We also have a very popular after school club that offers similar creative arts, sports and play activities and we currently pick up from various schools in the Herne Hill / Dulwich area. For more information about our after school please click here to visit our after school club page.

Both our after school club and inclusive play schemes are non funded however our specialist play scheme setting is commissioned by the Lambeth and Southwark team for children with disabilities and is open to children and young people with disability living in the borough of Lambeth or Southwark. Children and young people living outside these boroughs can apply for non funded places. Please click here for more information on our specialist playscheme and how to apply.
