ABOUT THE CLUB
We are excited to introduce Swindon's Dream Big Holiday Club, aimed to provide inspiring, thought provoking activities that allow children to be creative and have fun with like-minded children.
The Swindon Tuition Centre employs a range of specialist tutors who work with children both in term time and now during the holidays. The tutors selected for the holiday clubs are specialised in creative subjects such as art and drama. They are engaging and dedicated to their role in ensuring that children are healthy, happy and fulfilled individuals.
We are different from the conventional holiday clubs in that our focus is to expand the mind laterally; providing opportunities and inspiration for children to enhance their innate creativity. We collaborate with the children to jointly create our lesson plans, often providing the initial idea prompts. We foster child-led practice where they take the lead in directing their own art pieces, games and performances.
Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.
Prices start at £25 per day 9am until 3pm.
The next Dream Big Holiday Club runs from the 23rd July - 29th August.
Children aged 6 to 13.

DATES & PRICES
Safeguarding is protecting children from maltreatment; preventing impairment of their health or development; ensuring that they grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care; and taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best life chances and to enter adulthood successfully.
At Swindon Tuition Centre safeguarding and student welfare is of paramount importance and to that end we will always put the physical and mental well-being of students first. This sometimes requires us to share information with other agencies such as police or medical professionals.
Where we can, our intention is always to consult and work with parents or carers to achieve the best outcome for the student. Sometimes circumstances exist that do not allow for that consultation and the school has to take independent action in order to ensure a young person is safeguarded.
•Minimising contact with individuals who are unwell by ensuring that those who have coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms, or who have someone in their household who does, do not attend the Holiday Club.
•Staff and children will be expected to clean their hands more often than usual - wash hands thoroughly for 20 seconds with running water and soap and dry them thoroughly or use alcohol hand rub or sanitiser ensuring that all parts of the hands are covered.
•Where possible staff will encourage children to keep two metres apart but if this is not deemed possible, staff will encourage a social distance of 'one metre plus'.
•Staff will ensure their own and encourage children to have good respiratory hygiene by promoting the ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ approach.
•Holiday club staff will be regularly cleaning frequently touched surfaces often using standard products, such as detergents and bleach to be used by external cleaners.
•Minimising contact and mixing by altering, as much as possible, the environment (such as classroom layout) and timetables e.g. 3 day minimum booking.
•If a child, young person or other learner becomes unwell with symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) while in their setting and needs direct personal care until they can return home. A fluid-resistant surgical face mask should be worn by the supervising adult if a distance of 2 metres cannot be maintained. If contact with the child or young person is necessary, then disposable gloves, a disposable apron and a fluid-resistant surgical face mask should be worn by the supervising adult. If a risk assessment determines that there is a risk of splashing to the eyes, for example from coughing, spitting, or vomiting, then eye protection should also be worn.
•We cannot admit clinically extremely vulnerable children who have been advised to continue shielding.
