Your child’s development is key

What enables our award-winning Holiday Camps to stand proudly apart from other childcare providers is our passion and dedication in promoting the learning and development of all children in our care.

Through our carefully planned timetable that hosts a range of high quality engaging activities, we aim to guide the development of every child’s capabilities and skills on a daily basis to ensure that they truly benefit from our Ofsted registered Holiday Camps.

Our Four Key Areas of Development

Every Holiday Camp focuses on our “Four Key Areas of Development” that we believe are particularly crucial in igniting your child’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, for building their capacity to learn and form relationships. These include:

-music based skills and knowledge

-communication & language

-physical development

-personal, social and emotional development

You can see examples of how we have implemented this into every single part of our daily timetable in our Four Key Areas of Development in the Holiday Camp section of our website.

What Your Child Will Achieve With Us

We are really passionate about offering only the best in music education at our our Holiday Camps. For those children who are with us for the five-day experience, we aim for them to achieve a range of weekly learning objectives. Please note, for those children who come to us for a day or two, we aim for them to achieve a selection of the weekly learning objectives.

You can see our Holiday Camp learning objectives on our website

We even take into account your child’s Next Steps, to really ensure that they continuously develop their skills with us as well as love their time with us and offer you, the parents, confidence in us and peace of mind.

Celebrate Autumn with our October Half Term creative workshops!

Following the success of our Summer Holiday Camps, we are rolling smoothly on a high into Autumn, bringing plenty of magic, light and celebration. This is no time to hibernate, as we have got a week packed full of fun as we celebrate Diwali, Black British History, Day of the Dead and much much more. Don’t miss out, book now to get yourself a place at one of our multi award-winning Holiday Camps!

Monday – Diwali

There is no time to shiver and frown, it’s time to get active, keep warm and turn that frown upside down. In a cooler and darker season what better way to celebrate than Diwali, the festival of light. This wonderful South Asian festival promises plenty of sensory delights. The children will get the opportunity to choose from a range of activities including, creating a large Rangoli collage, Diwali themed sports activities and many more surprises in store.

Tuesday – Vivaldi

Rumour has it that this very talented C18th classical baroque composer’s favourite season was Autumn, so what better time to celebrate this Italian composers humble beginnings, musical journey and philanthropic work. The children will have the opportunity to listen and perform to Vivaldi’s ‘The Four Seasons’. Again there will be plenty of activities for the children to choose from in response to this magnificant composer.

Wednesday – Black British Celebrations

October is Black History Month, unfortunately black british history is not taught on our school curriculum and it’s so important to celebrate those who have not only paved the way for a better and brighter future, but it’s also great to acknowledge those who have achieved and made great contributions. In this celebratory session the children will have the opportunity to learn about Malorie Blackman (Children’s Laureate from 2013 to 2015), Sheku Kanneh-Mason (British cellist who won the 2016 BBC Young Musician of the Year award) and we’ll even be crafting our way to carnival. Team work makes the dream work!

Thursday – Day of the Dead

What better way to celebrate our loved ones, as we go on a magical journey to the afterlife. The children will have the opportunity to learn about this sacred Mexican holiday through singing, dancing, drama and arts and crafts. We will be resurecting the 2017 Disney fantasy film Coco to bring this afternoon’s activities to life. This will be an afternoon to treasure for a lifetime.

Friday – Halloween Dress Up!

Our October Half Term Holiday Camp would not be complete without a a few workshops on Halloween.
We start off our afternoon with a Big Sing Song where children will have a go at singing a range of
songs to get them in a spooky mood! Expect singing and dancing galore! We then move onto our
infamous Imagination Station session – giving children then chance

Our Holiday Camps for children aged 4-11 are running for the whole week at October Half Term (from 21st Oct in London & 28th in the Midlands), with half days from £20. If you’d like to find out more give us a call on 0121 296 9204 or take a look at our Holiday Camps page.

Recommended listening – autumnal edition

Welcome back to our Monthly Recommended Listening!

Every month, we are here to help you inspire your child with some season-appropriate classical pieces. Listening to music is not only enjoyable but is also beneficial in developing many skills including coordination and self-confidence that will continue to be useful for your child throughout their lives.

This month, The Strings Club Head Office team has come up with a list of classical music alongside some fun facts and links to YouTube and Spotify to celebrate the season of the golden leaves and misty mornings.

1) The Four Seasons “Autumn”, Antonio Vivaldi

Vivaldi’s “The Fours Seasons” were written to portray the events and emotions of the seasons. This set of movements in particular celebrates the harvest season with uplifting songs and dances. The final movement also illustrates a scene of brave hunters!

Listen to The Four Seasons “Autumn” on YouTube or Spotify.

2) Les Saisons “September: The Hunt”, Pyotr Tchaikovsky

The Russian composer’s “Les Saisons” is a set of twelve short character pieces for piano. His “September: The Hunt” portrays the hunters in their hunting dress mounted on their horses. Can you hear the horses galloping?

Listen to Les Saisons “September: The Hunt” on YouTube or Spotify.

3) Herbstrosen, Josef Strauss

The Strauss family was known for making dance music fashionable in the early 19th century, taking Vienna in particular by storm. Josef Strauss, the brother of Johann Strauss II, went on to write 283 compositions, including his Herbstrosen (‘The Autumn Rose’) in 1867.

Listen to Herbstrosen on YouTube or Spotify.

Meet Edouard our Hackney Franchisee!

We’d love you to meet Edouard our Hackney Franchisee! 

As a dad of two, Edouard was looking for an opportunity to combine his business skills with his passion for music and childcare – and has never looked back!

Edouard had worked for The Strings Club for four years as a Holiday Camp Manager at one of our busy Holiday Camps in South East London. Having enjoyed his role so much with us, he decided to join us in his own neighbourhood in London. Edouard states 

“I had always loved working for The Strings Club and really believe in The Strings Club brand and what they offer. Seeing children develop their skills whether it’s wellbeing, confidence or general music-making skills – I always loved seeing children grow.” 

Since setting up in the summer 2019, Edouard has seen a huge interest in our multi award-winning Holiday Camps in the borough of Hackney. His first Holiday Camp welcomed over 15 children which for a first event was an amazing achievement. Well done Edouard!

The childcare industry is currently worth approximately 7.5 billion a year and growing on an exponential rate. Recent trends also suggest that parents are on the lookout for childcare services that are of a high quality and that they can trust to develop their child in a safe environment. This is where we at The Strings Club comes in! 

If you’re looking for an exciting, profitable and rewarding venture, we’d love to hear from you!

Children aged 4 can come to our Holiday Camps!

Do you have a 4 year old? Are they new to Holiday Camps? A little shy?

We’re set up to help all EYFS children boost confidence, learn skills and make friends at our multi award-winning Holiday Camps.

Last year we were delighted to announce that all children aged 4 are able to attend for the whole day, 8am – 5.45pm.

Over the summer we had an influx of children in pre-school nursery aged 4 all at the start of their musical journey. We made lots of new friends and everyone had a wonderful time.

We are able to offer this at every Holiday Camp and next up is October Half Term!

Here’s why we are a great choice for pre-schoolers…

EYFS focused

Unlike other childcare providers we are fully Ofsted registered, which means we are working in partnership with Ofsted and their guidelines to deliver the highest quality EYFS focused childcare. Read more about what Ofsted registered means and the important ‘Moving On Up’ document for all 4 year olds.

Children flourish at our Holiday Camps

Your child will learn skills, make new friends, and build confidence each day they attend and every element of the day is designed to assist their development and help them fulfil their potential. Read more about our 4 key areas of development.

 

Our Holiday Camps for children aged 4-11 are running at October Half Term from Mon 21st to Fri 25th Oct in London and Mon 28th Oct to Fri 1st Nov in the Midlands, with half days from £20. If you’d like to find out more take a look at our Holiday Camps page.
