This includes a pre-school day Breakfast Club from 7.00am and extended hours for the After School Club, which will run until 6.30pm.
The extended care programme is run by Mrs Beaney whose experience and enthusiasm blends structured activity with fun, in a safe home from home environment. Mrs Beaney and her team try their best to meet the needs of every individual child and they work to form strong relationships with you as parents, giving feedback and regular communication. Mrs Beaney and her team are all qualified to a minimum NVQ level 3 or above in childcare and are first aid trained. They have a genuine interest in your son’s development, and help to engage them in activities and to have fun, while promoting a healthy diet.
