We are so lucky to have a bright and stimulating Club room for the children to use, packed full of fun activities! KS2 children come straight to the club at 3.30pm.  They are registered by our club staff then can choose to play or to eat a healthy snack such as toast, fruit, crumpets and cheese. Children in KS1 are are collected by a staff member and escorted to the club. They can choose to eat any time between 3.30pm and 4.30pm.  There is a range of craft, play and role-play equipment available and a large selection of outdoor activities as well as a relaxation corner with books, DVD and Wii. Cooking and craft activities are included in the session fee - pop in and visit after school any time and see many happy children!
