Arts Play Holiday Club
Arts Play in Barnstaple has been running at Orchard Vale Community School since it opened 13 years ago. This scheme was set up in response to parents making 40 mile trips to access inclusive childcare.

The clubs open Monday to Friday (except bank holidays and Christmas) during school holidays from 8:30am until 6:00pm. The cost for a day is £21 per child.


The clubs cater for children from 4 (in full time education) up to 14 years, or sometimes older if they have additional needs. The hours cover the working day but we can also offer respite singly or with siblings - please discuss with the play leader.


The clubs are Ofsted registered and receive 'good' inspection reports. Being Ofsted registered means that you may be able to claim help with Tax Credits or Housing Benefit.
