First Steps at RL Hughes Out of school & Holiday club

First Steps at Cansfield has been established since 1994. Our out of school club, First Steps at RL Hughes has been running at RL Hughes Primary school for 7 years.

All staff hold relevant childcare qualifications. The manager is qualified to level 3.

All staff are First Aid trained and are included in an ongoing personal development training programme to ensure they are kept up to date with current policies & procedures and changes to legislation. There is a very low turnover of staff that ensures stability for the children.

All activities are planned according to the children's individual needs by the children with support from staff i.e. personal interests and children have free access to a large selection of resources.

Outdoor play is an important aspect and is encouraged as children have access to a safe outdoor play area. 

The out of school club has access to a variety of school facilities and are able to enjoy the extensive outdoor play area and the indoor gym space. 

We run breakfast clubs, afterschool clubs and holiday clubs during all school holidays except the Christmas holiday.

Notes
We operate an open door policy and parents are welcome to come and see us at any time. The children's well being and happiness are of paramount importance to us and we welcome any suggestions as to ways we could improve our service and complaints are dealt with as a means to improve what we are doing and to meet the needs of all our families. We welcome children who have an additional need and if it is something we may not be familiar with or trained on, we will endeavour to access training to enable the child to attend our setting and to ensure that we have all necessary resources in place to make the child's time with us happy and comfortable.
