Our welcoming team are experienced and well trained. We offer a range of structured and unstructured activities in a free choice environment to suit individual children and their diverse needs.

Children will be delivered to their individual classrooms by our staff team. The club operates in a classroom and has access to the secure playground.

Cost

£5.00 per session

Our After School Club, 'OWLS' is run by our Manager, Laura Jones, with her team of staff. The team are highly experienced and trained to provide your child with stimulating and fun after school care.  Laura has planned a programme of activities which regularly includes risky play, painting, modelling, arts and crafts, dressing up, role play toys, board games, jigsaws and organised games and challenges. We have access to our secure playground to encourage plenty of outdoor learning on our play equipment.

There is a quiet cushioned area to relax, listen to music, have a chat or possibly read a book.

Laura and her team will provide a snack meal for early leavers and a hot meal for the children who are here until 6.30pm.  The children will sit together to eat at the beginning of the session. They will share their day’s news with their friends and it provides a warm friendly welcome to the club.

Location

The club operates in the wraparound care classrooms with secure access to the playground. Your child will be picked up from their classroom by one of our staff. At the end of the day, at collection, the parent/carer is responsible for ensuring their child is collected on time and that they are signed out upon leaving.

The club runs from 3.20pm-6.30pm, Monday to Thursday and 3.20pm-5.15pm on Fridays (a later Friday session will be considered if there is the demand)
