We are very keen to promote excellent behaviour so we would ask you to sign a consent form which will have our code of conduct, behaviour and ethics.  Your children will also be required to sign that they will abide by the terms of operation.

How we operate

Your children arrive here in the UK and from then on we take responsibility for your children and ensure that they are safe.

You will be responsible for getting visas and obtaining flights for your children.  We will forward you with the confirmed bookings of your children’s events to help them obtain their visas if this is their first visit to the UK.

Obviously we will have to liaise with you regarding the flights that they will be booked on.  This year we require all parents to take full responsibility for flight arrangements.

We will need a full transfer of all funds to ensure your commitment and to allow us to reserve places for your children by 18th March.

Safety

Our staff are well trained educationalists who have current DBS checks and are cleared.  They are courteous, kind and considerate that will take good care of your children. The educational resorts we work with have been established in the UK for many years and are reputable.  One of them has  been used for internationally known awards like the Duke of Edinburgh award. We can ensure that your children have a fun, educational and activity packed holiday. Reserve your child’s place now or you might be too late.

Safety is ensured because we only work with professionals who are checked and the activity centres are registered with all appropriate bodies. One of the organisations we are working with was one of the first in the UK to be awarded the new Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge. This is a government recognised scheme that is given to organisations that offer high quality safe educational experiences to young people.

Our etiquette programmes will be run by professionals who will deliver well organised activities that will change the lives and mannerisms of your children.

The botanical centre is an internationally known organisation that offers agricultural advancement that will wow your children and will widen their scope of learning in the area of plants and living organisms all over the world.
