out of school care takes place in our large main hall.
We collect from 3 local schools, which are St.
Bridget's, Swinton, and St. Francis. We can
accommodate 40 children both for after school care and
holiday cover during Easter, Summer, and October if
the service is required.
After a day at school most children are hungry and
ready for fun! We offer a selection of healthy snacks
at our snack bar for children to help themselves to
which also offers them an opportunity to chat about
their school day with staff and friends. We use the
resources available to us to create a safe and
stimulating environment where the children can choose
to take part in a structured activity such as arts and
crafts, cooking, dancing, free play in our “dress up”
corner, jigsaw, board games, and cards. We offer the
opportunity for physical play in our outdoor play area
or at local parks and relaxation time in our sensory
suite. If parents wish we can also encourage children
to do their homework with help from staff available if
they require. Always aiming to raise our standards, we
have monthly meetings where the children have the
opportunity to tell us what they like and what they
feel we could improve on. We listen and act upon
comments to improve our service, making our after
school care a fun, stimulating place to be!
