One dedicated instructor per group

We work with a unique policy of one dedicated instructor per group for the duration of their stay. JCA operate an instructor to child ratio of typically 1:12 (this can increase to 15 should this be deemed necessary as per BAPA guidelines). Please note there are some activities that require specialist instructors and therefore a different member of staff will be overseeing the group. 

This allows instructors to get to know the strengths, weaknesses and personality of each child, supporting children in getting the most out of their time with JCA. It also helps ensure children are properly supervised at all times in accordance with our stringent safety programme.
