ENCOURAGE YOUR LITTLE ONES CURIOSITY, BUILD CONFIDENCE AND CREATE LASTING FRIENDSHIPS

Our ‘Backyard EXPLORERS’ programme has been developed to allow pre-school aged children to enjoy our Gang activities. With guidance and supervision every session will be unique, exciting and fun.

The Explorers get wet, get dirty, build things and tear them down again. Their little fingers, their minds and their curiosity will be endlessly engaged. Together we will be AWESOME

*The Explorers is the perfect pathway for your child to join The Backyard Gang once they turn 5.

Love, love, love what you do with the kids and how much they enjoy it! Thank you.

Attire

Comfortable clothing is recommended. They will likely need a change of clothes too 🙂

Weather

Sessions are automatically cancelled during Black rain warnings or the hoisting of the No.8 Typhoon Signal. If the Gang is in progress while a severe weather warning is hoisted we will keep them safe until you can collect them or they can be handed into the care of a Guardian.  Please always assume that we will cancel if Red rain is hoisted. However, if we think it will be safe and Black rain is unlikely to be hoisted then we will go ahead (with caution).  Updates will be sent out to the WhatsApp groups.  In case of a Typhoon signal 3, assume we are on unless you hear otherwise. Sorry to say that credit refund will not be issued for cancellation caused by inclement weather.

Communications

Most communication is through dedicated Whatsapp Groups.

You will also receive the weekly video of your child’s Explorers session via these groups.

Cancellation & Refunds

Refunds, credit letters or make up sessions will NOT be given for non-attendance of programmes/event for any reason.

Refunds, credit letters will be issued if a doctors note is provided to prove the student is unable to attend due to injury or prolonged illness.
