About the Holiday Playclubs

Holiday Playclubs - Owen's AnimalsReading Borough Council Holiday Playclubs are a full childcare facility for children aged 4 years old (in full time education) to 12 year old (up to their 13th birthday) during the school holidays. Children are fully supervised within an open play service, and enjoy a variety of safe and exciting activities in comfortable surroundings. All the activities we offer abide by the Reading Play principles, encouraging fun activities that aim to meet learning objectives in a controlled, safe environment.

Our Holiday Playclubs strive to create a happy and enjoyable atmosphere. We want everyone to feel welcome and every child treated as an individual to feel supported and respected. We encourage and appreciate children's and parent's ideas, suggestions or thoughts and have numerous ways available for these to be expressed.

Each team consists of experienced and qualified staff that meets the national standards for childcare. Qualifications include NVQ’s in play work and/or childcare, food hygiene, safeguarding and paediatric first aid.
