How will I be kept in touch with my child’s development?
Before joining our Holiday Camp, you’ll receive a detailed, downloadable ‘Parent Info Guide’ designed to ensure that your child is fully prepared to have their time of their lives with us! It’s packed full of all the information you need before joining us, including details of what to bring.
We have a fantastic week of music-making, workshops and activities planned and a detailed Holiday Camp Timetable that will be distributed in advance so you can see exactly what your little one will be up to each day! You will also be given your specific Holiday Camp Managers mobile number to check in.
Throughout your week, you will also receive a daily newsletter including details on the weekly programme, exclusive offers and what the next day will involve. You can also see what your child will achieve with us here.
What does it mean to be EYFS Ofsted Registered?
Being EYFS Ofsted Registered ensures our standard are kept to a high level by having our Holiday Camps regulated and inspected by Ofsted frequently. We achieve this by:
- Our team member:child ratio meets and exceeds Ofsted ratios
- We are passionate about bringing music education to everybody and this includes children as young as 4. We believe children of this age should start learning an instrument as they are susceptible to learning, especially through our fun-filled, high-quality provision.
- Our progressive programmes that aim to develop your child’s musical proficiency, life skills as well as love for music! With our Grand Concert where your child can demonstrate what they have achieved and what fun they have had with their new friends
- Our range of workshops that help nurture a variety of skills from dance to musical theatre to creative arts to knowledge of music to ensemble playing
For further information on what being EYFS Ofsted Registered, please see here.
What is the Grand Concert?
Each Holiday Camp ends with a grand concert (Friday 3.15pm) – so your child and their new friends can proudly show you what they’ve learnt! By the end of their time with us, your child will have experienced wonderful musical adventures, made new friends, and developed skills for life.
Can I sign up for just one day at your Holiday Camps?
Of course! Our Holiday Camps are very flexible – you can book for anywhere from half a day through to the full week. We recommend that you don’t book for a Friday only as the children will be unable to participate in our Grand Concert as they will have not learnt the chosen piece during the week in our Learn Together, Play Together sessions.
My child already has regular lessons and is very good – will they be bored?
Absolutely not – our course leaders are experienced at teaching lessons to a range of ages and abilities. Where we have lots of children with prior experience we will run an Intermediate Ensemble.
Does it matter that they are a complete beginner?
Absolutely not – we are the perfect introduction to an instrument for the first time! We find that lots of parents ‘try’ our Holiday Camps to see whether the instrument is a good fit for their child before to committing to regular lessons.
