Situated within the Nursery at the Start Well Linked site, the Before and After School Club is for children who attend the nursery or school only. We are open 7:30am – 8:55am and 3:15 – 5:45pm Monday to Friday.
The building is within a green field site and has a separate play area to the school. Our staff take pride in the quality of care we provide. All staff holds a minimum of level 3 childcare; the manager having Early Years Teacher Status and all are paediatric first aid trained.
Breakfast is served until 8:30am and is a choice of cereals, toast, fruit and fruit juice. School children are taken over to the school by a member of staff, ready to start their school day. We promote healthy living; water is available throughout, as and when the children want it.
At the end of the school day, the school children are collected from St John’s school and brought back to the Nursery. A snack tea is available for those who attend.
Children have access to indoor crafts and play areas, outdoor play and can go on the Xbox in the after school session. We keep TV and Xbox time to a minimum and encourage children to play as part of their wind down for the day.
St John’s Primary Holiday Club is open to all children aged 3-11; they do not need to attend the school to come. We are located within the Nursery at the Start Well Linked site.
Open during all the school holidays, except bank holidays, we provide a structured activity plan that puts the fun into learning. Our activity plan often follows a theme to give the children interest for that week. Here is a list of just some of the activities we do;
- Go to the local park
- Run around and play games on the playing fields
- Craft activities
- Watch films
- Host a talent contest
- Board games
Childcare vouchers and Tax-Free Childcare payments are accepted.
