Combine work and holiday fun for the kids at the Third Door Holiday Club

Get some work done while your kids learn all about the weather this half term at [Third Door]’s Holiday Club. The Wandsworth-based flexible workspace with on-site childcare will be running a week of weather-themed activities from 25 – 29 October for children aged three to eight.

Parents can either leave their children at the Third Door Holiday Club while they go to work, or they can work upstairs in the wifi-enabled open-plan workspace while their children have fun below.  Third Door is a flexible workspace with OFSTED registered childcare, operated on a pay-as-you-go basis. It is run by husband and wife team Yusuf Chadun and Shazia Mustafa and is based in Wandsworth, South West London. It opened in May 2010.

Activities for the week include:

25/10: What the weather man says – Children will be exploring the natural habitat of the outside world – learning about the different seasons and habitats. Children will be climbing, running and investigating the change of colour in leaves that they collect.

26/10: Creating a season tree – Children will have a fun and exciting day observing the trees around them and building their very own tree.

27/10: Mini investigator – Time to wrap up and put the wellies on! Children will explore Battersea Park and zoo to see how animals react to seasonal changes. Note: this will incur an additional transport and zoo entry cost.

28/10: Preparing for broadcast – Children will help create a TV and will work on their presentation skills, learning the name of our seasons and how the weather impacts on the environment.

29/10: Weather channel broadcast – Show time! Children will get to be weather forecasters using weather symbols they’ve created and the TV set designed from scratch. If consent by parents is given, the weather broadcast will be recorded onto DVDs and supplied to all children that have taken part.

Numbers will be limited to no more than 10 children aged between three and eight per day. Cost is £55 per child per day (10% discount on second child). Office space for the day is £22, including wi-fi. Children should take packed lunches. For more information, go to www.third-door.com, email hello@third-door.com or call 0208 877 0098.
