Before & After School / Holiday Club
Our Before & After School and Holiday Club is staffed by suitably qualified level 3 practitioners who know the children and families and understand their requirements when caring for their children.
Our Before School service provides children with breakfast if required although we do appreciate that some children have already had breakfast at home. Some will choose to eat again when they arrive at nursery and join in with this social occasion.
If time permits, writing and drawing activities will follow on from breakfast until it is time to depart for school. The children are then taken to school by staff, who are all paediatric first aid trained, and they ensure that the children are taken to their classroom where a handover sheet is signed by a responsible teacher or other appropriate adult welcoming your child to school.
When collecting your child from school we again obtain the teacher's signature on a handover sheet and your child is brought safely back to nursery. On return to the nursery, a tea of sandwiches or beans/ravioli/spaghetti/pasta is provided along with cakes or fruit.
The Before & After School and Holiday Club is housed in a separate room within the nursery and is equipped with suitable activities and resources to occupy your child until you arrive to collect them.
During school holidays, the staff in our Holiday Club offer a wide and interesting timetable of events for the children. These include examples such as Farm Visits, Woodland Walks, Cinema / Theatre Trips, Soft Play at Xscape, interwoven with plenty of craft and creative activity sessions organised at nursery.
