After School Club

After School Club runs from 3pm to 5pm (term time only).

The after school club is open to everybody but is aimed at families with work commitments.  We offer a more relaxed environment so children can unwind and be free to play different games, tablet computers or just chill. A snack will be offered. The price will be £4.00 per hour only.

Sessions

We are open Monday-Friday, 9am-3pm (term time only).

We have places for 40 children aged two years and upwards. We have two rooms; one for the two year old children and one for three year old children and above. This enables us to provide a high standard of effective care and learning. There are various session times available, both morning and afternoon as well as all day sessions.

We have two outside areas which allow for play to flow from the inside to outside. Both areas are installed with safety flooring which provides a enjoyable environment in which the children can play.

Our sessions are planned to follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework and typically include a welcome time and warm up song, free play inside and outside, with structured time in smaller age related key working groups. We also have a snack and drink time in each session.

There is a wide variety of toys and activities for all ages, so there is something for everyone! If you have any questions, please do contact us.
