The aims of the club are to provide a high quality accessible out of school service for children, irrespective of abilities, means or circumstances in a safe, stimulating and caring environment, so as to encourage their physical, emotional, social and intellectual development.
The Objectives of the club are to:
- Provide a wide range of imaginative play opportunities in a creative environment to increase children's play and social activities.
- Give parents peace of mind, knowing that their children are safe and also having fun.
- Enable parents to consider returning to work, training, etc.
- Create the right environment for children to develop confidence and self-esteem.
- Work with parents in a partnership to achieve these objectives.
Our club is aware that all children are individuals with varying needs and some children have additional needs that require particular support and assistance. We follow comprehensive Meeting Individual Needs Policy which shows we are committed to taking appropriate action to ensure all children are able to access our service, mad to feel welcome and included, and our activities promote their welfare and development. We aim to ensure that no child will receive less favourable treatment on the grounds of colour, race, ethnic or national origin, religious beliefs, disability or the ability to pay in any matter to do with the club. We have an Equal Opportunities Policy which is followed at all times.
