It will be necessary to book in advance for all of the sessions that you would like your child to attend. This is to allow us to accurately manage the numbers attending as well as ensuring that suitable food and activities are provided.
You are expected to pay for each session booked even if your child does not attend due to sickness or holiday.
Children can arrive any time after 8:00am. Sometimes children may have had their breakfast but for those who have not, a healthy selection of breakfasts will be offered at approximately 8:15am.
School children will be escorted to school by a member of staff at approximately 8:45am, whilst playgroup children stay within the setting.
Playgroup children remaining at the after school club will stay seated in the library area whilst the remaining children leave the setting. Once everyone has left safely, children can choose which activities they would like to do.
Younger children attending wrap around care from Stottesdon school will be collected by a member of playgroup staff, while the older children will make their own way to wrap around care at approximately 3:15pm. A register is completed to ensure all children are present at wrap around.
The children's time in afterschool club can be spent building dens, being creative, playing outside, reading, using the computer, playing games and generally playing. During afterschool club we focus on playing and developing our social skills, we believe these are of key importance to every child’s development and all children have the right to play! We provide a healthy snack for all children at approximately 4pm.
Children can be collected at anytime up to the end of the session which is 5.30pm. Parents are asked to provide a change of clothes and shoes for their children so they can choose to play outside.
If your child has any specific requirements, please discuss these with a member of staff and we will endeavour to meet their needs to the best of our ability.
We have very good links with the school and liaise with them daily, thus ensuring that any relevant information can be passed on.
We communicate daily with each parent/guardian to inform them of how their child has been during the session, including details about food, behaviour and other relevant information.
