Activities for Children
The Parasol Project Child Service runs an inclusive holiday playscheme in Northway, Oxford (Tower Playbase) which has places for 40 children per day.
50% of the children attending each day are disabled.
We operate on a child to staff ratio of 4:1 with a portion of the staff team allocated to support children with specific needs. All our playworkers go through enhanced DBS checks and attend training in first aid, lifting and handling, Generalist Safeguarding and disability equality training.
The Playscheme offers children the opportunity to develop through free play and also runs a range of activities including: Bushcraft, arts & crafts, mud kitchen, sports, sensory play and fancy dress. We also have a fantastic sensory room, a large garden, special events (magicians, science and musical workshops) and day trips to Thomley Hall, Snakes and Ladders and Millets farm.
We take registrations for our child service all year round. If you have a child who you would like to register please head to our contact page and get in touch.
We’d love to hear from you!
Your generosity plays a vital role in supporting our ambitious and enriching provision.
