The summer holidays are in full swing and days are flying past full of activities and fun in the sun. The last thing children are thinking about is school, but before you know it, September will be here and with it the new academic year. Why not take some of the last minute pressure off and plan ahead for the beginning of term?
We have everything you'll need for an organised and easy return to school. Here's our list of ten essentials to help with your preparations:
Meanwhile, if you're running out of things to do with the children over the holidays, we can help you out with that too! We're hosting an exciting free series of children's craft workshops in Main Square, near Costa, on August 6th, 8th, 13th, 15th, 20th, 22nd, 27th and 29th. The workshops are aimed at children between 3 and 10 years old and they can drop into them between 10.30am and 3.30pm. Each workshop will have a different theme from Pirates and Parrots, Sea Life Crafts and Carnival Masks to Mug Decorating and making a Back to School Bag. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
We're open seven days a week, 9am until 5.30pm from Monday to Saturday, and 10am until 4pm on Sunday. We're looking forward to seeing you!
