Easter Motiv8 – Barra

General Information

Bookings Open 28th March at 12pm. If you want your child to attend for a full day you must book them onto both the morning and afternoon session. Children attending all day will be supervised over the lunch break, however if your child is going home over the lunch break (30 minutes) you must inform Motiv8 staff on the day.

The Afternoon session includes a cooking element so please ensure Motiv8 staff are aware of any food allergies in advance of your child attending.

Children with additional support needs are welcome to our events.  Please inform us at the time of booking, detailing your child’s additional requirements. A parent/carer may be required to stay with their child to ensure adequate supervision.

Children should wear/bring with them: 

  • Suitable clothing and footwear for indoor sports activities.
  • Some of our Art Activities use acrylic paints, so maybe avoid wearing new clothing, though children will be provided a tabard.
  • A bottle of water and light snack.  If your child is attending for the full day, please bring along a packed lunch.
