Daddy Daycare is one of the few holiday club providers that are open for 7 weeks of the summer! We have a different theme each week, we take the kids outside every day and prices start from as little as £32 a day for 10hours care. This includes all trips, transport and snacks so all your provide is a pack lunch and a spare pair of clothes!
We are also able to provide care for children starting school in August. In our experience it has been hugely beneficial for children starting P1 in August to finish nursery at the end of June and spend the six weeks of summer at Daddy Daycare in an environment that is similar to P1. Plus for parents the added bonus is that we are nearly half the price of some private nurseries.
PLEASE NOTE THIS IS THE 2019 SCHEDULE WHICH WE LEFT ON THE SITE SO FAMILIES CAN GET AN IDEA OF WHAT DADDY DAYCARE CAN OFFER. THE ACTUAL 2020 SCHEDULE WILL BE UPLOADED IN APRIL.
Our themes LAST year were:
Week 1 - International Theme
Week 2 - Arts and Crafts Theme
Week 3 - Sports Theme
Week 4 - Edinburgh Theme
Week 5 - Animal Theme
Week 6 - Nature Theme
The themed idea was an idea the children came up with and it has proven to be very popular. It also has educational benefits as we learn a lot about the theme over the week in a fun fact finding way.
The holiday club is run by experienced Daddy Daycare staff who are PVG checked and trained in first aid, child protection and food hygiene.
WHERE ARE WE?
The holiday club is mainly based at St James Church on Inverleith Row (EH3 5PX) where we have our Inverleith after school club, and it runs from 8am till 6pm.
This year we are also opening our Bristo Church club on Queensferry Road for week 3+4.
You don't need to attend the after school club to come to the holiday club and we have special authorisation that allows us to care for children starting school in August 2019
Holiday fees are £160 per child for one week of Monday-Friday care, this includes all transport, entry fees and snacks. 50 hours of care for £160, that is as low as £3.20 an hour! All we ask is that you supply a pack lunch for your child.
