Holiday fun at Oscars

Published Monday 31st March 14

IF PARENTS are concerned about how their children are going to be entertained during the Easter school holiday break, they need to look no further than Oscar’s!

The after school and holiday programme based at West Rugby Club on Catcote Road was recently hailed as "outstanding" following a visit from Ofsted inspectors. It caters for children aged 3 to 16.

During the Easter break (Monday 7 April - Thursday 17 April), parents are able drop off their children from 8.00am with breakfast provided for them on arrival. They then embark on an action-packed day of fun and thrills prior to being collected by parents by 5.45pm.

A wide range of activities have been lined up for youngsters as Sandra Robinson, the Council's Out of School Coordinator, explains: "The team have put together a varied programme which include a 'onesie' dasy, fashion show, Easter egg hunt, jewellery making plus visits to Ward Jackson, Summerhill, Vue Cinema and Hall Hill Farm.

"Our experienced team are great with the children and everyone is looking forward to the Easter holiday fun. As a parent myself I know how difficult it can be to juggle working and looking after the children and hopefully Oscar's can make things easier for parents during school holidays.

"Children have a great time with us and parents can relax knowing that their children are in safe hands."

The after-school service involves Oscar's staff picking up children from school and transporting them to the Catcote Road centre where they take part in a wide range of educational and fun activities. Parents then have until 6pm to collect their children.

Anyone wishing to book, view the Oscar Playcentre facilities or requiring further information should email sandra.robinson@hartlepool.gov.uk or call 07771 936968.
