Kidzcare @ Oaklands is a holiday playscheme run for children who have aditional support needs such as cerebral palsy, epilepsy, complex learning difficulties and visual problems. Until the summer of 2010, the playscheme was exclusively for the children of Oaklands school, however it now accommodates the children from St. Crispins School as well. The children from both schools are funded by the Council with a minimal cost to the parents which is asked to cover transport, lunches, activities and trips.
Kidzcare @ Oaklands is opened over every school holiday, with the exception of Bank Holidays and is designed with a specific theme. Activities are then planned and are made sure to suit all our children. There are always lots of trips and exciting people come into the play scheme to entertain and interact with the children. Our staff to children ratios are very high and most children are 1 to 1.
Oaklands is an Additional Needs Playcheme for Children from Oaklands and St Crispins between the ages 5 to 17 (except leavers). The playscheme is run by INC Consortium. The Consortium is a not for profit project made up of five organisations: The Action Group (who are the lead organisation), Kidzcare, Lothian Autistic Society, Fabb Scotland and The Yard. The playscheme service is funded by the City of Edinburgh Council.
