Play is at the heart of what we do. Our role as Play workers is to provide a suitable physical and human environment for children to learn, develop, create and explore through play. We aim to create an atmosphere in which our children feel comfortable and can develop confidence, self-esteem, co-operative skills and independence. It is also very important to us that our children’s families feel comfortable in club and we strive to develop and maintain good relationships with parents, carers and other family members.
We cater for children aged 4-11, although sometimes older children do join us. Children may start the summer holidays before Reception starts to help settle them in before they start school.
We are OFSTED registered and all staff are fully compliment with enhanced DBS checks and relevant training.
Extra curricular activities at school
If you require us to collect your child from an extra curricular club (e.g. choir, football, netball), we will do our absolute best to accommodate it. Sometimes, however, we may be unable to get to your child’s activity due to clashes with previously agreed collections so it is essential that you arrange this with us in advance. We will need to know what activity your child is participating in, what time it finishes and where we need to collect them from (school hall, reception, classroom etc). Once we have confirmed we can collect your child from their activity, please inform your child’s school.
