Cambridge Kids Club @ Cambourne
We operate the holiday play-scheme from The Blue School on Eastgate Road in Great Cambourne and the outdoor play is on the school ground (rain or sun). Like all our other clubs we operate the club based on 'Free Play' and children have choice on what activities they wish to do. We have a quiet area were children can do homework should they wish too.
Meet our Play Leader: Maxine
Club Address: The Blue School, Eastgate Rd, Great Cambourne. CB23 6DZ. (Opposite Jeavons Wood Primary School)
Location in school
Parents can use the playground entrance when collecting their children. The gate will be locked, please ring the bell and a staff member will come and let you in. During the winter months the main entrance is used. Please ring the bell on the classroom door.
If you are collecting your child/children by car, we request that you park in the church carpark located next to the building.
What the club offers:
We are a self-directed PLAY based provision.
“Play is a process that is freely chosen, personally directed and intrinsically motivated. That is, children and young people determine and control the content and intent of their play, by following their own instincts, ideas and interests, in their own way for their own reasons.”
This is very different from the classroom environment, which can be (and sometimes needs to be) a very structured environment. We believe that after a long day at school or term of learning, children want to come to us to have fun and freedom in an unstructured self motivated way. Children will learn skills that they need in the growing up process, but in a different way to school.
