After School Centres

Your Tiger aged 5 to 13 years

Our afterschool centres provide a number of childcare options which can be found in ‘Our Unique Environments’. These include Breakfast Club, Hour Club, Homework Club and full Time Care. Our after school programme takes into account that children need time for relaxation after their school day. Our classrooms have areas for relaxation, play and physical activities. Each classroom also has an area for technology.

After homework time the children are allowed to take part in both planned and child-lead play. We respect the children’s wants and needs and act as partners in their care. We understand that as children of school-going age become older (at the more senior end of the scale), they wish to have more freedom and less supervision. We liaise with each child and parent and draw up ‘contracts’ with the children to allow them unsupervised time. We also allow the children to use the more adult facilities e.g. kitchen and staff areas. The children themselves draw up sanctions for any misuse which helps them to develop responsibility and accountability. We allow children choice at meal times. We provide at least two options, allowing children to choose their dish. Children serve themselves and clean up their plate when finished. We meet with children on a regular basis to discuss their wants and needs and we change the environment regularly to reflect their opinions.
