& Holiday Club
Our After-School Club is intended to cater for parents of school age children who require a homely, friendly environment for their children. We offer wrap around care from 7-30am till 9am and also 3pm till 6pm, Monday to Friday. We offer specific activities for the older children and separate equipment and toys especially purchased for the group. We have a quiet space for the children who wish to do their homework and additionally we have computers, CD player, television, games consoles and a DVD player with a range of DVD's for all ages. Our outdoor play area means that the children also have access to plenty of fresh air and space. We also use the local park and the nearby Astroturf for football and other outdoor activities/games or just to sit and have a picnic if that is what's prefered. A freshly prepared balanced snack is provided every day, please see the Menu's page for examples. Breakfast is served each day and the children are able to choose between cereal, porridge or toast. During the school holidays we also offer Holiday Club on the same terms as After School Club. As spaces are limited please allow plenty of time and book in advance.
