Half Term Scheme
We run creative and engaging drop-off holiday schemes for ages 5-11. Every day children get to spend half a day doing activities led by experienced professionals such as graffiti or animation and the other half doing activities led by our fully trained, in-house team of youth leaders. The activities are designed to be engaging and varied and suitable for children with additional needs. We provide a nutritious and delicious break time snack and lunch, all our food is kosher.

What will my child be doing?
Each day the children get to do a mixture of specialist activities and a mixture of youth leader activities. Each day is designed to be engaging and interactive so that attendees get to do a variety of different, fun things.
Does my child need to be Jewish to attend?
No, any child can join us on scheme and 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.
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.
My child has additional needs, is scheme suitable for them?
We always try to cater to children with additional needs on scheme and have a network of one to one support workers for children with additional learning needs. Please feel free to get in touch so we can talk to you about ways we can support your child, including cost implications.
I/my family are in receipt of Statutory benefits, does this change the cost of Scheme?
Yes, depending on what benefit is received. Please be in contact with Box Office to discuss individual circumstances and potential discounts if proof can 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 is the cancellation/refund policy?
We do not refund tickets for scheme except in the unlikely event of cancellation.
