WASPS Out of School Club has been operating in the Community Centre since December 2006.  We currently collect and take children to and from various local schools (Roger de Clare, St Thomas of Canterbury, Jenyns and Ralph Sadleir).  We also take children to SPINS Nursery after our Breakfast Club and collect children from SPINS Nursery at 2.15pm ready for our After School Club.

AFTER SCHOOL CLUB

We are open from 2.15pm to 6.15pm Monday to Friday (term time only).  Children are collected from their schools and escorted to the Community Centre main hall by either a walking bus or by car.  They are provided with a light tea at 4.15pm consisting mainly of sandwiches, beans on toast, pizza, noodles, soup, crackers with spreads and vegetables and fruit.  Children have a choice of activities to choose from including Arts and Crafts, Board Games, Card Games, Construction Toys, Role Play, Dressing Up, Face painting, Computer games, Cooking, Indoor and Outdoor Sports, Chill Out/Reading Area, Occasional visitors and outings and trips to the park.

Prices are £4 from 2.15-3.15pm, £12 from 3.15-5.15pm and £16 from 3.15-6.15pm if booked in advance.  Slightly higher charges apply for children on an occasional basis where less than one weeks notice is given.  We now give a 10% discount for 2nd child and 20% discount for 3rd child attending from same family.  We charge extra to collect children from schools via car and collecting and taking to after school activities (staff ratio permitting) e.g. Starlight Stars, Streetdance, Beavers and Cubs which are held on site.

BREAKFAST CLUB

We are open from 07.45am to 08.30am Monday to Friday (term time only).  We will accept children from 07.30am if parents need to get to work earlier and this will incur an additional charge of £2. Children will be offered breakfast consisting of cereals, toast and fruit juice before 08.15am and then taken to their respective schools for registration.  If needed we also take children to end of term church services.  We play lots of team games to ensure children arrive at school full of energy!  Children also catch up with friends or homework. Prices are £6.50 per child per session booked in advance.  Slightly higher charges apply for children on an occasional basis.

HOLIDAY CLUBS

Holiday Clubs are run during February, Easter, last two weeks of the Summer Term and October Half Term between the hours of 08.00am and 6.00pm.  The cost is £10 for half a day or £20 for a full day.  Discount applies for families with 2 or more children attending.  Please ring for further details.  Please contact us to show an interest and tell us what you want/need so that we can ensure we cater for all your childcare needs within the villages.  Dates have already been booked for the use of the hall for February, Easter, Summer and October 2015 so we can guarantee the use of the hall.
