Dear Parents and Carers
It is with much regret that Whippersnappers have decided to, delay opening our Fairy and Dinosaur Land until 2022.
The decision has been made due to the high numbers of children with disabilities who have been referred to Whippersnappers by Lambeth and Southwark Children with Disabilities Team. Whippersnappers are currently offering these children holiday playscheme childcare within our holiday playscheme provision.
The current COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in staff being contacted regularly by NHS Track and Trace, which has caused us to be overstretched with staffing rotas. Theatrical productions are particularly challenging due to specific casting requirements. Whippersnappers feel that it would be unwise to compromise the standard and professionalism of our immersive theatre productions due to staff shortage.
We will be hosting Family Drumming Sessions and Storytelling at Brockwell Lido throughout the rest of the year. Please let us know if you wish to be updated with more information on our Drumming Sessions.
We hope you have a lovely Summer and we look forward to seeing you at Whippersnappers soon.
