Early Birds & Night Owls
Before & After School Club
ABOUT THE CLUB
Early Birds and Night Owls Before and After School Club is registered with Ofsted and is based in our Nursery area. The club is open from 7.30am until 6pm Monday to Friday during term time. (Please note the night owls sessions will finish at 5.30pm from Monday 1st November 2021). We also run Holiday Clubs during school holidays.
We are situated in our very own purpose built room and also have access to ipads and a large outdoor play area. Additionally we can use other school facilities such as the hall, ICT Suite, playground, the sensory garden and our school field.
N.B - During current times with Covid-19, the Early Birds and Night Owls club will be held in the hall. Please note, each year group are allocated a specific table area and children are kept in their allocated bubbles. This is for the safety of children and staff.
We provide a safe, secure and relaxed environment, offering a range of activities which reflect the interests of the children in our care. We take children from two years of age upwards.
WHAT WE OFFER
Children are free to choose activities and resources as they wish. There will always be a selection of activities and resources available including dressing up, role play area, craft activities, board games, construction, computer games, physical play, gardening, cookery and reading.
WHAT WE PROVIDE
The food we provide at the Club is not intended as a substitute for a main evening meal. We provide healthy snacks including fresh fruit and vegetables. We promote independence by encouraging the children to help prepare their own snacks and to clear away after themselves. We use fresh ingredients and follow statutory guidelines. Fresh drinking water is available at all times. We meet individual dietary requirements and parental preferences wherever possible. We recognise the importance of healthy nutrition for children delivered in a calm, friendly setting.
All of the staff at Early Birds and Night Owls have significant experience of working with children and undertake professional development training on a regular basis. All staff are DBS checked. We maintain a staff/child ratio of 1:8 for children under the age of eight and 1:4 for 2 year olds in line with statutory requirements.
