Play Schemes and Holiday Activities


Challengers Alton

Challengers Alton is an inclusive playscheme for disabled and non-disabled children in a caring, safe, supportive and fun environment. Snuggle in the sensory room, get messy in the art room, bounce on the bouncy castle, use your imagination on the play floor and explore the outdoor area complete with bikes, games, and more - come along and make new friends. We provide lots of trained energetic bubbly staff to support all children – there are spaces every day for children who have complex impairments and who need 1:1 support.

We are delighted to announce that Ofsted has awarded the Alton Playscheme an Outstanding rating following their visit over Easter Holidays 2015.
