Holiday playschemes and Inset day childcare

Greswold Greyhounds offers playschemes for staff training (Inset) days and during the main school holidays. The playschemes are available to all children from Nursery age up to Year 6. Children can be booked in with us from 7:45 - 18:00 or sessions within that. We also offer the option of a hot meal at Lunchtime. See the price page for current pricing.

We ensure that the playscheme has lots of fun opportunities for the children, appropriate to all ages and stages of development. Activities include free access to toys, games and art and crafts. We also use the school field, playground and trim tracks where the children enjoy playing outside throughout the day.

This year we have had some visitors in to run sporting activities with the children. We have had circus skills workshops, Animaltastic, a Magician and Lego workshops. Our team of playworkers also run cookery sessions, themed days and a whole range of art and craft activities and games with the children. Children are cared for according to their individual needs and interests by our fantastic Greyhounds team.

Summer Holiday Playscheme 2018


This year we are welcoming back Sarah Foxall from Animaltastic. She will bring along a range of animals for the children to handle and to learn all about. This was very successful last year and children who came last year gave it a hearty recommendation.


We are having weekly magic, balloon modelling and song sessions with Professor Pepperpot. He is recommended and is well known in the West Midlands for entertaining children and families of all ages. The Create Build learn Team are visiting to do a Super Mario themed session with us, again we did this last year and the children have asked for it again.


On the last Tuesday we have a disco. This is the finale of our last Summer holiday week and will be great fun for everyone.

We also have new toys and resources on the way. The team have been asking the children over the last few weeks what they would like, and we have ordered toys based on the children's interests. Please contact us for further details.
