Our Philosophy

e are committed to providing high quality, affordable out of school care where children have fun!

 

 

Working hours do not coincide with the conventional school day and school holidays can be the greatest challenge of all. Children enjoy being with other children and thrive in their company, so for your child we aim to provide a safe, secure, fun, stimulating environment where the needs of your child can be met. We offer a range of age appropriate activities with lots of choice creating opportunities for fun and social interaction allowing you affordable accessible child care so you can go to work or attend training/college. Our club isn’t just a childcare club for children with working parents, anyone can attend. We offer a light nutritious snack on arrival; with drinks freely available throughout the session.

Breakfast Club  KIDS3

“A Positive Start to the Day”

Breakfast Club @ Wingerworth Wonder Years. 1a Welbeck Drive, Wingerworth

Breakfast Club is available Monday to Friday

07:30-09:00 during term time.

Breakfast before school provides the opportunity to begin the day with a healthy balanced meal. It has the additional benefits of improving children’s concentration, punctuality and attendance, providing early morning childcare and an opportunity for educational and social activities.

A café style service is offered for children to have a healthy breakfast encouraging children to be independent and giving them freedom to enjoy their time before school with their friends. We offer toast, crumpets, brioche, waffles, cereal, milk, squash and fruit juice.

Our Out of School Club team then escort the children safely to their school/class for the start of the school day.

After School Club  KIDS3

Our After School Club team collect children from their class/school and escort them safely to our after school club setting (1a Welbeck Drive, Wingerworth). Once there we provide children with a relaxed environment where they can freely choose activities and toys to participate in and play with.

Children have the opportunity to relax, do their homework or join in with the activities specifically planned for their age and preference.

A café style service is offered for children to have a healthy snack encouraging children to be independent and giving them freedom to enjoy their time after school with their friends.

Many different themes and projects are organised for children to participate in so they have fun and learn new skills; including healthy lifestyles by encouraging and offering children the opportunity to join in many sports and physical activities.

We aim to provide educational programmes which involve activities and experiences for children, which consider the individual needs, interests, and stage of development of each child in our care. We use information gained about our children on a day to day basis to plan a challenging and enjoyable experience for each child in all of the areas of learning and development.

Holiday Club  KIDS3

Holiday Club @ Wingerworth Wonder Years 08:00-18:00

Many different themes and projects are organised for children to participate in so they have fun and learn new skills; including healthy lifestyles by encouraging and offering children the opportunity to join in many sports and physical activities.

We promote the holistic development of the child by encouraging them to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding. We recognise that play underpins learning for young children and practitioners use a child centred approach to provide and support a variety of appropriate learning opportunities, which meet the diverse needs of young children.

Our planning is based upon the observations and interests of children, which allows us to respond to children’s actions and events and sustain a successful learning environment.

In our setting children can move freely from one activity to another, they can choose their play direction which is a combination of adult focused and child initiated activities throughout the session.

A café style service is offered for children to have a healthy snack both mid-morning and afternoon; encouraging children to be independent. A packed lunch brought in from home is required for children staying all day.
