Breakfast club provides a high quality service meeting the needs of both parents/carers whilst allowing children the opportunity to have a healthy nutritious start to the day and the chance to engage in activities, relax and have fun before the start of the school day.
Breakfast Club runs from 7.45am with breakfast being served at 8.20am.
Children can enjoy quiet time which includes board games,drawing ,lego, top trumps and a variety of other games or participate in a friendly physical games session to wake their bodies and mind up ready for a day of learning.
Breakfast club children are offered a nutritional breakfast of cereals, yoghurts, toast, seasonal fruit and juice as well as hot porridge in the winter.
After school club has a relaxed feel and we fully appreciate that children may be tired at the end of the school day and may simply want to ‘chill out’ during their time with us. Children are encouraged to choose activities they wish to take part in and the emphasis is very much on supervised free play.
After school club children are offered a nutritional snack which varies each day and may include sandwiches, pikelets, hot dogs, cheese & crackers, seasonal fruit, along with juice or hot drink.
