About the Club

Aims

The club aims to provide a safe, secure and relaxing environment for the children in our care. We endeavour to offer activities similar to those found in the home.

 

What we offer

We offer a wide range of activities including; cookery, craft, board games, reading, imaginary play, construction, sport, ipads and much more. During their time at the club the children choose what activities suit them best.

A piece of fruit and drink are offered on arrival at the club and a hot snack is prepared at 4.15. This is a snack and is not intended to substitute a main evening meal. In order to develop independence the children are encouraged to prepare their own snack and clear away after themselves. We use fresh ingredients and follow statutory guidelines. Individual dietary requirements and parental preferences are met wherever possible.
