Thank you for choosing to book your child a space to come and join us at Manor Farm...
The following information should be everything you need to know to ensure that your child has a fun filled time with us, but if you do have any questions please just get in touch.
We have plenty of comfy indoor space at the farm in Slimbridge and Wycliffe School in Stonehouse but we do endeavour to get out and about enjoying nature and visiting the animals as much as possible and the following information and kit list will hopefully mean we are ready for anything:
Old comfy clothes + set of spares in a named bag extra pairs of socks are very useful!
Wellie boots for mud play, pond dipping and pony riding (safety helmets and body protectors will
be supplied for every child).
Waterproof coat/mac and trousers if you have them. > Warm coat or jumper to go under mac. >Slippers or
Sun cream in a named bottle and sun hat if it is hot.
Gloves are a good idea even in summer for some activities for children with sensitive hands. Spare gloves in
winter are great if you have them.
Please bring a packed lunch, snacks and water bottle for each day. No nuts please! Plenty of drinking water
will be provided throughout the day. Club starts at 9am each morning and finishes at 4.30pm.
