Art and Craft
Outside play opportunities
Table top or floor toys
Book and a cosy reading zone
Films and computer based fun learning games
Forest School style opportunities
Activities will vary from day-to-day to support children’s enjoyment and interests. The club will respond to national festivals, events and fun topics to add additional interest and purpose.
To ensure that there is a homelier, comfortable feel to the after-school club, children will be asked to bring a pair of slippers each day. These can be left in school for ease. Each child will also need a pair of wellies for outdoor activities. Please could you ensure items are labelled with your child’s name.
Treetops will maintain a good staffing ratio to ensure that the adults are available to play with the children, support them and inspire them and make sure that they are happy and settled. Provision will be limited to a maximum of 20-22 children at all times. This will ensure a consistent adult ratio of 1 adult per 7-8 children. This high ratio will help ensure your child’s safety and ensure that the club is able to facilitate a wide range of activities.
We like to find out about your child before they join so that we know their likes and dislikes – we even give new children a “Buddy” when they start, a friend that will look after them as well as the staff always being there for them.
We believe that your child will be in a happy, fun, safe and caring environment whilst at Treetops and hope that all children who attend have an enjoyable time.
