Children registered at the club will be under constant supervision of professionally trained staff. Staff are on hand to ensure the utmost safety and security of your children.
During their visit to the club, children will be involved in a myriad of activities including indoor and outdoor games, crafts, sports, swimming and storytelling enabling parents to enjoy a relaxing break and children to enjoy a full, action packed day.
In addition to the many fun indoor and outdoor games available, children will also learn about the different animals that live on the property as well as the conservation of animal life. The children will be exposed to traditional South African games, crafts, music and dancing.
