At the end of every successful season, our childcare team works through the winter to prepare new, exciting experiences for our Heroes Mini Clubs in a nurturing, safe environment. We are sharing some important service upgrades along with the news that our childcare provider, Worldwide Kids, has been replaced by our in-house team of experienced, qualified professionals, who will be taking over all Crèche, Kids and Teens Clubs.
Guests can easily book their childcare online via the Ikos website as part of the contactless guest experience, whilst our facilities are undergoing a redesign, with new equipment and features for children to explore, too. What’s more, evening events for kids have had a complete re-vamp and we look forward to sharing our new entertainment programme for 2022.
Ikos Crèche activities are centered around the process of play, allowing each child to be curious and explore the awe and wonder of their imagination.
For our Heroes Club we have a variety of activities planned so each child can explore their superpowers and have hours of creative fun in each session, with a wealth of exciting themes including:
Eco Explorers –Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. A theme filled with sustainability activities and crafts that will inspire kids to take care of the planet every day, while exploring the nature around them
Carnivals and Celebrations – An exploration of destination-based traditions along with the sharing of traditions and cultures of all of our little guests.
Little Scientists – Helps children explore why and how things work, as they take part in experiments, get messy and have fun.
Arts & Crafts Factory – Inspired by all things kids love, giving them the opportunity to be arty and create their very own mini masterpieces
Little Chef – Using local fresh ingredients children will get to explore the basics of culinary expertise with our fun, simple cooking guide.
