Kingfishers

 

Introduction

Here at Kingfishers we operate a Before and After School Service for the children of Town Junior School. We are based in the Community Room and have access to the outside playground. Our Club follows the Playwork Principles, so the children are free to choose activities and resources as they wish. There will always be a selection of activities and resources available, including dressing up, quiet area, craft, board games, construction, physical play, cookery, and reading.

 

What we provide

At Kingfishers, we will provide breakfast in the morning for an additional cost, and a snack during afternoon sessions. However, please note the food we provide at the afternoon session is not intended as a substitute for a main evening meal. We provide healthy snacks, including fresh fruit and vegetables. We promote independence, by encouraging the children to prepare their own snacks, and to clear away after themselves. We use fresh ingredients and follow statutory guidelines. Fresh drinking water and cordial is available at all times. We meet individual dietary requirements and parental preferences wherever possible. We recognise the importance of healthy nutrition for children delivered in a calm, friendly setting. We allow children to decide when they are ready to eat their snack, but request that food be consumed whilst sitting at the snack table. The light tea will be provided at a set time for all children to eat together.
