We have made the difficult decision to cancel our Easter Holiday Clubs, following the Government's

recent advice. We must all play our part in social distancing and the safety and well-being of our children, parents and staff is our highest priority. However 'the show must go on!' Our dedicated team of staff are currently putting together an awesome...


'Online Gems Easter Programme


- Five days filled with daily activities, games, creative tasks, pre-recorded videos and two live online sessions with teachers per day so the children can still have daily interaction with their friends and Gems teachers

- Like our normal clubs, the week will be based around our much loved show themes - see below

- The children will be sent the script, taught the songs and dances from their own homes, given worksheets, will make posters, write stories, play drama games, record videos of them performing and...

- We will aim to do a performance at the end of the week which we hope to film (if we have permission from parents/carers) and everyone can receive a copy as a memento which could be shared with other family members or friends who need their spirits lifted. 

- We would offer a reduced rate but still aim to provide at least 4 hours worth of activities per day. The children do not have to participate in all exercises if they do not want to, but we would aim to have a mixed schedule of activities to keep the children active and not always looking at screens. 

Hopefully we can help take the pressure off the parents for a week, the children can still be active, engaged and creative and most importantly connect with their Gems friends and have some fun, as no doubt by Easter they will have some cabin fever. Any questions do contact us, we'd love to hear from you.

"The boys had a fantastic week! They bounced in every morning and out every afternoon! He sings all the time but not normally with everyone watching him but he loved the whole experience! I would send them every week if I could! "

“My daughter has been to several different clubs over the last two years but I have to say I have never seen her this animated and engaged in a club. Every morning she was ready to go to the club and every evening she was practicing her songs and looking forward to Friday’s performance so thank you so much for an excellent holiday club which truly engage the children.”

"My daughter was the kid at the back who was shy to put herself forward. Gems has given her so much confidence, she feels like she is being seen and recognised. Not only is she more confident, she now actively seeks those bigger roles. Its absolutely fantastic"    - Summer 2017

"My sons enjoyed each day and quickly made friends with the other children. It was really lovely to see their happy faces when they were collected. Seeing all the kids perform was just brilliant.  Thanks again, and thanks to the ladies who helped them each day"
