The Club aims to provide an age-appropriate and stimulating programme for the children. Breakfast of toast and cereal with a cooked option on Fridays is served from 7.30 am. – 8.30 am. In the afternoon, drinks and light snacks are available at the start of the session at 3.00 pm., with a more substantial snack served at 4.15pm. Children are offered a free choice of a variety of activities, e.g. arts and crafts, computer and outside play. These are often based around a weekly theme. Children who attend day-care are provided with a hot meal at 12.00.
The children are encouraged to suggest and help to plan these activities. Suggestions from parents are always welcome, as well as their participation. There is an opportunity for quiet activities, rest or doing homework.
It is our aim to foster and encourage an interest in healthy eating amongst the children.
In order that we can fulfil our commitment to healthy eating, it is necessary to prohibit the consumption of sweets, crisps and fizzy drinks on the premises. Chewing gum is not allowed. We therefore ask the parents to provide their children with a packed lunch and snacks, unless there is a specific dietary requirement to do so – in which case, parents should consult the Supervisor in advance and be aware of the need to keep the Club fully informed of any special requirement, allergy or health problem.
If you are interested in helping the staff by giving your time and any suitable skills, we would love to hear from you. Please contact the Head Teacher for further information. All volunteers must be Police checked before they will be able to work in the Club.
We aim to ensure that no-one is treated unfairly because of his or her race, colour, ethnic or national origins, religious beliefs or disability.
Staff as well as the Management Committee will aim to ensure that the services they provide are accessible to every child attending the Club.
