A safe environment with a similar staff base each year that gives a secure feeling to the children. The staff are fabulous. Each time my son is on a break from school he asks if CHIPS is on, it’s by far his first choice over the many other activities we do in the holidays.

Chips has made a big difference to our lives this summer as my children have special needs and summer hols are too long for them as they are used to routine. They loved chips and want to come back next year. Staff are friendly and helpful. Thank you.

CHIPS is fantastic, my son loves coming every year! We are reassured that he is in a safe and happy environment. Thank you.

My girls loved it and I'm so pleased they join for the week. They have learnt so many different things and their confidence has grown.

"(My son) has had another fantastic time this Easter, he loves all the staff and enjoys meeting new children. He already can’t wait for the next holidays and is counting down the months. Thank you all so much."

“CHIPS has been a lifesaver. For my son having been out of school for almost 6 months now due to the pandemic he was really missing a daily structure and being around other children. My child has had a beaming smile on his face every day when I have picked him up. He is really excited to go, we shall be sad when it finishes at the end of the week.” Easter 2021

"My daughter has had an amazing time at chips. She is very shy and has low confidence but she settled in very well and couldn't wait to get back the next day." Easter 2021

"It’s really nice you get try new things - it’s like a food tasting restaurant!" Easter 2021
