We do not currently offer a discount to siblings.
We are required by Ofsted to support all children up to the end of their reception year with a key worker. We have specially designed Play Journals for each child and this will be completed with the Key Worker throughout their first year at school. Key Workers will support children through transitions from school to after school club and ensure they are progressing through play opportunities.
Each school with stagger reception start dates slightly differently. When your sessions are confirmed, please provide us with the date you wish your child to start attending the club. This is normally similar dates to when they start school full time.
Yes. We do encourage all parents to visit the after school club before their child starts. This gives parents and children time to meet the Playleaders and Playworkers and ask any questions they may have. It is also a great chance for children to familarise themselves with the layout and see if they already have friends attending.
Each club provides a slightly different menu. Generally for breakfast there is a variety of cereals, toast, yoghurts and fresh fruit with water, milk and fruit juice available to drink. In the after school clubs there is likely to be a variety of vegetables, crackers, breadsticks, meats and cheeses. To drink there is diluting juice and water. Fresh fruit is available continually.
The registration fee of £20 is per child, this covers administration time and secures their place on the waiting list we we are not able to offer them a place straight away.
The deposit is for children who are going to be attending regular sessions each week. As we invoice in arrears it offers us a little security against invoices. When you email us your month's notice to cancel sessions, we will return the £100 deposit when all invoices are paid.
No. To offer parents childcare security we roll sessions over from one academic year to the next. This means that children's places will continue until we receive notification from parents to change or cancel them.
Yes. Most of our breakfast / after school session hold a waiting list. We recommend contacting us at the earliest possibility to register your child and add them to the waiting list for your required days.
No. We offer places on a first come first served basis. The only time this is not used is when a child is on the waiting list but are not able to start, we then hold their place until it is needed and then make offers to children next on the list.
