If the children are lacking direction, our staff are there to help them along, as play workers we facilitate their play and the little ones particularly need this in the early stages.

A variety of equipment and play opportunities are available to the children, but as play workers we are here to support and facilitate children’s play and not decide for them. After-school is a time for fun and chilling out, therefore as well as the indoor and outdoor toys and resources, we have a TV, DVD’s, PlayStation or Wii, and much much more! Our programme of activities is put together following consultation with the children during club council meetings.
We hold a club council with the children on a regular basis this is a platform for the children to ask for new resources, throw in ideas etc, within reason they need to take responsibility for their play setting and the staff ask if there’s anything they want to change or introduce or remove etc . I would encourage all children to chip in their ideas if they want to change anything as this feedback is taken into account when we have a staff meeting and discuss future planning.
We offer the children a fair balance of risk and safety in play and children enjoy the activities on offer. If present, the additional needs of parent’s and children are being met .Children are offered the opportunity to learn about different faiths and cultures and we are an inclusive childcare setting.
