Noah’s Ark Playscheme provides a valuable respite care service for children with a learning disability and their families in Hertsmere. We accept children with learning disabilities aged 5-16 yrs and will accommodate siblings where possible.

The scheme runs for one week at Easter and four weeks during the Summer holidays, Monday – Friday 10.00am – 3.00pm. We also hold activity days during the Xmas holidays.

Where we are:  

We run from a local school in Borehamwood.

What we offer:

We provide fun and stimulating activities, outings and entertainment, for example, trips to soft play, theatre, farms and parks, bowling, as well as on-site activities such as bouncy castle, creative play, entertainers etc.

Caring for your children:

On arrival at the playscheme, each child is greeted by a member of the friendly staffing team led by the Head Play Leader.  Every day, each child has a named member of staff who is responsible for their individual care.

Children bring their own packed lunch; drinks and snacks are provided, taking dietary requirements into account. Medication can be administered where necessary, with the consent of a parent/carer.

Daily cost : £10 (concessions available)

2019 Playscheme dates:
Easter – 10-16th April (weekdays only)
Summer – We run for 4 weeks during the summer holidays (Contact Rochelle Gould for more details)

The Ofsted-registered scheme is led by dedicated and enthusiastic staff and we take volunteers over 16 years old.

Job opportunities are available for Play Assistants during the running of playschemes.
