    For 3 to 5-year-olds

    Storytelling, role-playing, dressing up – there’s all this and more at Tots. Plus, games like hunting for a magic tree and a teddy bear’s picnic make sure your little ones return from their holiday with plenty of tales to tell.

    For 6 to 8-year-olds

    Group challenges and interactive tasks are the name of the game at Team. Fun challenges take centre-stage, like ‘Shipwrecked’ when they all work together to escape from ‘the island’. And there’s more where that came from.
