In our setting at The Downs Lawn Tennis Club, we aim to provide a safe, nurturing, stimulating and fun environment for all children ages between 3 and 11.
Our club is run and owned in partnership by Fiona Hoskins and Liz Cooper.
We are open from 3pm-6.30pm Monday to Thursday, and 2.15-6.30pm on Fridays.
We identified and sought to fulfil a need in the local community for a comforting, secure and homely place in which children could be cared for after school, whilst enjoying the company of other children from all races, cultures and of different ages, ability levels and genders.
All staff are CRB checked and in addition to being loving parents, we are trained professionals with a background in child minding and nursing.
After collecting them from The Avenue Primary and St Dunstans, we settle them down with a drink (fruit squash or water) biscuits and/or fruit.
We then provide opportunities to engage in activities such as crafts, cake making, games, outdoor play, sports and homework. Whatever the child feels like doing!
During this time, we also pick up children from extracurricular clubs run at The Avenue.
At 4.30, everyone sits down together for a healthy meal, followed by more play!
We aim to compliment the school curriculum and cultural and social events with linked themes.
Our emphasis is on caring for all the children, both emotionally and physically and we will provide comfortable and stimulating surroundings in which the children can thrive.
Monday to Thursday sessions - £16 per child.
Friday sessions - £17 per child.
We also run a super fun summer camp and a breakfast club!
