Jesse’s House, Parsons Green, London

If you’re feeling the weight of the proverb ‘it takes a village to raise a child’ and find yourself longing for support, look no further than Jesse’s House – the latest outpost from The Little Houses Group. Opening in Parsons Green this July, Jesse’s is named after founder Charlie Gardiner’s second child and joins their first club, Jaego’s House in Kensal Rise.

A joyful, jam-packed paradise for kids and parents alike, the club offers a haven for families, in one affordable monthly fee.

Highlights include an outdoor and indoor pool (with swim school run by former team-GB swimmer, Sophie Allin), Reformer Pilates, gym, adult-only co-working spaces and a huge courtyard, playground and mini sports pitch for football and playball. While parents refuel in the restaurant, kids can safely let off steam in the crèche and Kids’ Club. The final membership sale is on 4 June – register your interest at Jesse’s House.

The Peligoni Club, Zakynthos, Greece

This summer, The Peligoni Club in Zakynthos, Greece is taking its kids’ offering to new heights with an exciting partnership with TARKA – London’s popular kid on the block when it comes to active play.

The Kids’ Clubs’ overseas debut will see it host all-new activities for 6-10-year-olds, with a focus on inspiring children to build confidence, re-discover imagination and embrace teamwork with friends while having the time of their lives.

Kids are divided into two groups, The Majors (6-8 years) and The Colonels (9-10 years), with each session having a different theme to keep things fun, engaging and exciting. Activities include The Peligoni Olympics, The Poseidon Pool party and Secret Spy. At the end of every session, there’s even a wellness wind down time, focusing on breathwork and stretching – a core part of the TARKA experience. Discover more and book your holiday at Peligoni.
