Smart Play's Multi-Activity programme offers variety and challenge to all children. When designing the programme, the main focus was to ensure that the children were given the opportunity to develop in all areas. To accomplish this, we have created a programme jam-packed with a variety of fun and stimulating activities.
Smart Play Activity Camps offer a variety of innovative and traditional learning programmes designed around the Principles of Accelerated Learning. Our intention is to create an atmosphere where children experience a wide variety of fun games and activities, in a challenging, playful, joyful, relaxing, and safe environment.
How do we do this?
1) A curriculum that reflects a brain-friendly learning philosophy.
2) Create a positive learning community.
3) A multi-activity programme offering variety and challenge to all the children.
4) A safe and secure environment.
Booking must be made in advance!

Smart Clubs… The activities, as with all of the Smart Clubs courses, are designed around Smart Learning. What this means in a nutshell, is to provide a varied and challenging activity programme in a non-threatening environment that is fun, playful, and engaging.
In such an environment, children will gain confidence, and develop a sense of achievement and a positive self-concept.
Children are encouraged to try lots of new activities so that they can step out of their comfort zone, and be stretched and challenged. At the same time, children have the support system around them to nurture and encourage their experimentation.
Activity Clubs take place during breakfast, lunchtime and after-school.
