Thumbs Up Club - Holiday Club for children and young people with special needs
The Thumbs Up Club runs at Easter and summer between 9.30am until 4pm, and is for children aged 3 to 19 years with special needs.
At the Holiday Club We have a very high staff ratio of 1 staff per 2 children with a Club Manager, Assistant Manager and 2 Supervisors on site.
The club is based at Addington School which is a new purpose built school for children with additional needs. As such the premises are safe,secure and we also have access to all of the outside play area which is equally secure.
Activities include arts and craft, soft play, outdoor play, computers, visiting entertainers and themed days.
Bookings and payment must be made online.

We also provide a limited Transport Service for families who have no other means of getting their child to Club. We hire a minibus, driver and escort from Readibus specifically for this. Transport is charged at £10 per person per day for a return trip to and from home address only. This is available in the Wokingham and Woodley area predominantly to ensure that no child is on transport for more than an hour or so each way.
We must emphasise places are very limited for the holiday club. We cannot guarantee requested places but a maximum of 40 places per day should be available.
