    10550197_666684123430255_7110797875332726813_oThe Stone Eden Holiday club provides care for children aged 4-11 years during the school holidays.

    It’s a fabulous opportunity for children who love to explore and go on daily adventures.

    A typical day at Stone Eden Holiday Club:

    8:00am – 8:45am: Children arrive and can choose to eat breakfast with us.

    9:30am: A healthy snack is provided before the mini bus arrives

    10:00am: The mini-bus arrives and takes the group out on their daily adventure where they have a picnic out and about. 

    The children get to choose a sandwich filling for their packed lunch.

    3:30pm: The mini-bus returns around this time. The children then have free time to play and are made a home-cooked tea.

    Children need to bring weather appropriate clothing and footwear.


    Holiday club payments are charged by the hour and you can collect your child any time after 3:30pm.

    £50 deposit is required with the return of the admission form for each child. The deposit will either be deducted or returned from your invoice at the end of each holiday period. The deposit is non-refundable for any child that does not attend.

    We charge just £4.70 per hour, which is fully inclusive of travel, entry fees and freshly prepared meals, cooked on site by our very own chef.

    We would appreciate that you settle each child’s fees on a weekly basis or on completion of their sessions with us.

    The Management reserve the right to change activities depending on availability, numbers and weather conditions.

    Please book your child into holiday club as soon as you know that you need a space. Late bookings can impact on our activity planned and staffing arrangements.

  • Caterpillars have had a lovely morning planting cress seeds. They have been using their fine motor skills to pick up the wool and sprinkle the seeds. They then added water to them to help them grow
