    My 5 year old son has just started attending the Yippee holiday clubs at Manor Green school in Crawley. It was great to finally find somewhere he could go in the holidays where I could be confident he was well looked after and stimulated with lots of fun varied activities. Recommend!

    My 11 year old daughter LOVES this Saturday and holiday club! They offer a good range of activities and have great staff on hand to assist the children with daily needs and activities. The club go on trips to places of interest, go swimming, and lay on varied interactive activities catering for the needs of mamy children with differing additional needs. Highly recommended!

    I would thoroughly recommend the Yippee club, both the Saturday sessions and those run in school holidays. Our son looks forward his "play club", as he calls it and, in fact, it has been the first activity that he has been happy to be left at for the day. The staff are very competent, switched-on and friendly and the activities are excellent. Thank you, YMCA, for running these clubs in Crawley!
