During the holidays the Early Years Project runs holiday schemes to allow parents to work while their children are looked after all day. Previous schemes have had various themes, during the Halloween holidays last year a French theme was used and the children were introduced to the French flag, sport, language, history and culture.
During other schemes a wide variety of activities where enjoyed by children including swimming, clay modeling, jewellery making, cookery, art, face painting, puppet making and story telling. Drama is also a big part of the schemes and this year the children where encouraged to write and produce their own play. Day Trips also take place, in the past they have included visits to the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, Windsor Park football grounds and Belfast Castle.
