Hi5’s Out of School & Holiday Clubs In EffordEnquire now
Welcome to Hi5's Efford!
Tops Efford provides before- and after-school clubs and a Hi5’s Holiday Club service at the nursery setting for school children up to the age of 11 years old.
The Hi5 Clubs are run from Tops Day Nurseries’ Efford setting, situated as part of the DELL Children’s Centre – for families living in Deer Park, Efford, Lipson and Laira. The children can take advantage of the nearby Efford Marsh (only a stones throw from the hub), which allows plenty of opportunities to explore the natural environment, and lends itself readily to scavenger hunts and sensory experiences.
The Hi5s Holiday Club offers a wide range of activities, both indoors and out, including woodwork, arts and crafts, sports and team games, music and movement, cooking, science and many more! The Hi5’s site is also lucky enough to have access to an expansive garden space, which is home to plenty of equipment, such as slides, sandpits and climbing frames, which the children love to use!
The plans for the Hi5’s Holiday Club are changed weekly and have been influenced by the interests of the children who regularly attend our Hi5’s out of school or holiday clubs. We are aware that children’s interests change on a regular basis, so the plans are flexible and designed to ensure that the children’s interests are kept during their attendance.
Have a look at an example plan for our Hi5’s Holiday Club below:
|Monday||Chromatography butterflies and planes. Coffee filters and pipe cleaners are needed to make these!||Animal snacks… Preparing and making veggie snails, banana dolphins or apple turtles|
|Tuesday||Wildlife on our doorstep. A walk around our area to look at the wildlife around us. Can you name the animals you see?||Magnificent magnets! An afternoon of making dough animal fridge magnets.|
