LAC aims to provide a meaningful learning experience for children age 5 to 14 years. We aim to enable children and young people to develop confidence, self-esteem and the necessary skills and ability to progress through key stages of social, emotional and educational development enabling them to reach their true potential.
The education programme is currently delivered on Saturdays (term time only). We do aim to provide educational opportunities for children during school holidays this includes trip and days out. When these opportunities are available we will inform you.
