More about Activities and Classes
Activities out of a school setting for kids are very important. You find that children really gain confidence and develop their personalities whether they are in a club or partaking in lessons. Essential skills like team work and hand eye co-ordination are benefits that kids gain and never forget.
With all activities and classes we advise calling beforehand to check times and costs. Some activities have a waiting list or require advance payment so, again, worth checking! Also ask if you can come along to try the class before committing to a number of sessions.
