What happens when my child comes to the club?
The children are collected from each site by qualified playworkers, running a walking bus from Downend Road school site. We collect children from the infants school (reception to year 2) from their classrooms, and meet the juniors (years 3-6) in the playground under the shelter by the year five classrooms.
Each child wears a yellow vest until they arrive at the club, and we abide by the recommended BAND ratios of children to adults, both on the walk and at the club.
On arrival at the club the children choose a healthy snack and a drink and then have some fun!
Children can choose from a variety of snacks, including items such as wraps, bread, rice cakes, tasty spreadables (hummus, cheese, preserves, guacamole),ham, turkey, salami, pate, carrots, peppers and cucumber. At 5 o’clock the children are offered fruit. Drinks are available at all times.
We provide a number of activities for the children. We have a large hall with craft activities set up, free space for physical play, both inside the hall and in our fenced outdoor play area. We have a range of sporting equipment to let off some steam, and enjoy games. We also have a quiet area for children wanting to take it easy, with colouring, plenty of books and comfortable bean bags to settle down on.
