February Half Term Scheme

18 - 22 February

We're excited to announce the return of the brilliant JW3 February Half Term Scheme with a brand new theme of Magic, Mystery and Mayhem.

Each day experts will lead your children through workshops with a variety of skills, and they'll also enjoy games, stories and craft activities designed by professional children’s performance company Infinite Jest. We will of course be providing a nutritious and delicious kosher lunch and snacks from our restaurant Zest.

Highlights include physical theatre and storytelling on Monday, magic on Tuesday, circus skills on Wednesday, puppet-making and puppeteering on Thursday, and mask-making and mask work on Friday.

The day runs from 10am-4pm Monday to Thursday, and 10am – 2.30pm on Friday.

Parents are welcome from 3.45pm Monday to Thursday to watch a mini-showing of the day’s work, and there will be a showing and group Kabbalat Shabbat (short ceremony to welcome in the Sabbath) at 2.10pm on Friday.

Early drop off is available at 9.15am at the cost of £5

Does my child need to be Jewish to attend?

No, any child can join us on scheme. We promote an inclusive and friendly environment and there may be some content that relates to Jewish culture.

What will my child be eating?

Our in-house restaurant, Zest, provide kosher catering for scheme. The children have a selection of fruit at morning break and a biscuit at afternoon break. Lunches always include a salad bar and vary from pizza and pasta with tomato sauce and cheese (on the side), fish and/or falafel and chips or plain bagels with either cream cheese, egg, tuna or cheddar cheese fillings. We always provide a vegetarian option and can provide a gluten free option if requested beforehand.

My child is 4 years old, can they attend?

We cannot take children under 5 years of age on our scheme for legal reasons.

Can my child change age groups to be with their siblings/friends?

If a child is over 7 ½ then, dependent on there being space in the desired age group, we may consider moving them to the 8-11 age group. Similarly, if the child is under 8 ½ then we may consider moving them to the 5-7 age group. However, we will need to speak to the parents about this first to approve any move as scheme activities are designed to suit the particular age group and if they move they may find the activities too easy or hard.

I/my family are in receipt of statutory benefits, does this change the cost of Scheme?

Concessions are available for those families who are recipients of benefits. Please contact Box Office to discuss individual circumstances. Proof of the benefit will need to be provided.

Can I bring medication for my child?

The only prescribed medicines which will be held by JW3 staff are asthma inhalers and EpiPens which should be in the original container, labelled with the child’s name and dosage. Any other medication must be approved by the Programme Director in consultation with the parent/guardian. Antibiotics will not be stored or administered by JW3 staff. Painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen may NOT be brought in.

What time do I pick up my child?

You can pick up your child in the afternoon between 3.50-4pm. We give this window of time for flexibility as we know that some parents might need to pick up children from other places. Please make sure you are on time - if your child is with us after 4pm we cannot guarantee entertainment or activities for them as we begin our preparations for the next day.

Please note that on Friday Scheme finishes at 2.30pm.

What is the cancellation/refund policy?

We do not refund tickets for scheme except in the unlikely event of cancellation.
