Our Daily Routine at After School Care


2.30pm/3.00pm Roll, Afternoon Tea, structured freeplay

3.40pm A planned enrichment activity is offered each day, offering children the opportunity to CREATE, PLAY and  MAKE , in the form of arts and crafts, games, physical activity, theatre sports (eg. role-play, dancing), kitchen or science-based activities.

A wide variety of choice activities, including colouring, playdough, lego, card games, cars, imagination games, ball games and outside play are always available for those who choose not to join in the planned enrichment activity, and our staff are ready to facilitate child-led activities and games too :-)
