Welcome to Hi5's Gillingham!

Tops Gillingham provides before- and after-school clubs and a Hi5s Holiday Club service at the nursery setting for school children up to the age of 8 years old.

The setting for the Hi5’s clubs is lucky to have a lovely outside area, where the children are able to plant, play and explore in different environments; there’s a bug hotel and a beach area! We like to encourage the children to get outside as much as possible so often take country walks and trips to the local parks and promote a sense of community by taking the children out into the town area. For drop-offs and pickups, we have designated parking spaces for our customers to use, as well as access to an overflow car park behind the nursery.

The Hi5’s Holiday Club offers a wide range of activities, both indoors and out, including cultural appreciation days, sports and team games, science, woodwork, arts and crafts, cooking, music and movement, and many more!

The weekly plans for the Hi5’s Holiday Club are influenced by the interests of the children who regularly attend our out of school clubs and those who were enrolled for the previous holiday club. We are aware that children’s interests change on a regular basis, so our plans are flexible and designed to ensure that the children’s needs are catered for during their attendance.
