Children can arrive at the Children's Centre club room in the term time any time after 8 am, and can play freely until 8.45 am, when it is time to go to school. The children are arranged in mixed age groups for the journey. Once in the playground, the children are allowed to play with their friends for a few minutes, just as they would if their parents were bringing them to school.
In the afternoon, the children are collected from their classes by a member of staff and go to our club room. On arrival, the children are encouraged to wash their hands, ready for a snack. The children then make their own choices about what they would like to do, whether it is to participate in an art activity, play outside, and play on the computers or just chill out with their friends, until their parents collect them by 6pm.
