Jambo Juniors is for children, aged 0 – 10 years, of staff members and leaders, to enable them to carry out their staff roles, and will be available throughout the period of the Jamboree. It is hoped this will be from Sunday 30th July to Friday 4th August, inclusive of both dates. There is an expectation that children will not be with their parents whilst they are working.
It is the intention of the Jambo Juniors staff to ensure that all young people, that are part of the club, enjoy a full and varied programme of activities and feel they are part of the Jamboree.
We want the children’s time with us to be fun, exciting and sometimes even challenging. The programme of activities provided will be age specific within the four age groups, which are: 0 – 2 years, 3 – 4 years, 5 – 7 years and 8 – 10½ years. There will be a variety of activities some for specific age ranges and others that will include everyone with differentiation included.
Jambo Juniors staff will be a mix of appropriately qualified and experienced staff, used to working with children within this age group and will include a nominated qualified First Aider. Further details of staff qualifications can be provided on request.
If a child has any specific needs or requirements these should be discussed with the team. There is little we cannot deal or cope with as long as we know about it in advance.
There will be two sessions daily running from 9.00 am to 12.30pm and then again from 1.30 pm to 5.00 pm. Snacks and drinks will be provided for children in the mornings and afternoons and will take place as a social event during the session. Parents will need to collect their children for lunch if they are booked in for both sessions. Where younger children or babies require milk/formula or baby food for snack times, this will need to be provided, by parents, for the child(ren) and sent with them to Jambo Juniors.
Children do not have to attend every day or for every session. However Sessions will need to be booked in advance of the Jamboree, where possible. There will be some flexibility for parents who have time off at the Jamboree and want their children with them, but we ask that Jambo Juniors staff are notified as soon as possible if this is the case or if there are any other changes to bookings.
Numbers are limited for the crèche and places have all been allocated.
