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 a wide range of creative arts, messy play, sports, performing arts, music and trips out.

Our age range is currently from 5 to19 years. ( Children must have turned 5 before the 31st of August 2021, prior to their start date).

Inclusive Holiday Playscheme

Whippersnappers have reopened our inclusive play scheme at Brockwell lido for up to 15 children a day. This play scheme runs during Easter and summer holidays and during half terms. The play scheme costs £30 a day and runs from 10am to 5pm with an additional £5 an hour if your child needs to attend from 9 am or finish at 6 pm. We do sometimes ask parents for a contribution towards trips out when we take children on special trips like Go Karting or visiting the theatre.
