Holiday Club

Rainbow Den Logo websizeWe call our holiday childcare The Den – our club for children aged 5-11

The Den has it’s very own club hub in the basement of the 1855 Building. This is an enclosed space including a wide variety of activities and resources to keep our Den kids engaged and entertained. A big focus of our holiday childcare though is going on outings – everything from checking out what’s on in the museum that holiday, exploring other local museums, hopping on the train over to Hebden Bridge for a canal cruise or to Bradford to visit the Media Museum, or even going rollerblading and snow-tubing – all included in the price!

Places cost just £35 per child, per day (£20 for just morning or afternoon).

We are open from 7.30am right through ‘til 6pm, Monday to Friday during school holidays. To book, just call us on 01422 252 112.
