Upon arrival, the children will be offered Breakfast consisting of a choice of cereal, along with toast with various toppings, yogurt and fruit. Should your child have a favourite cereal that we do not stock please let us know and we will do our best to cater for them (please note we are a nut free club so there may be certain cereals we cannot provide). BREAKFAST FINISHES AT 8.20AM to allow time to tidy up. Once finished eating the children are free to play games and take part in art and craft activities, or just sit down and read a book.
HANDOVER WITH THE SCHOOL – ENSURING YOUR CHILDS SAFETY
The children will be taken to their class room when school starts.
Should the children be going to another club before school and after being dropped off at our Breakfast club, we will only hand over the children to the other club’s personnel and they will need to be signed out by the other club.
SESSIONS AND PRICES
We run many sessions to cater for most needs. Please see our Booking Forms at the bottom of this page for details.
AFTER SCHOOL CLUB
Quackers After School Club is based in both the Riddell Room and the Knowledge Hub.
PICK UP DETAILS
You will need to enter the club via the outside door that leads directly into the Riddell room. Your child will need to be signed out by you on departure. Should we be playing outside a note will be on the door with the club’s mobile number so we can bring your child to you.
HANDOVER WITH THE SCHOOL – ENSURING YOUR CHILDS SAFETY
We provide the School with a Register of those attending to ensure your child reaches us safely. We will collect each child from their classroom.
Should a child we are expecting not arrive after school, we will liaise with the school to see if the child was in that day.
Please let us know if possible by 12.00 noon if your child will not be attending THAT day. Failure to do this MAY see a £5 charge added to cover time wasted looking for your child/children and may result in the withdrawal of our services to you. This is also important if your child is to attend another Club before coming to us and we have not been told of this on the Booking Form.
If coming to us later from ANY other Club, you will need to liaise directly with them to ensure your child is brought to Quackers as WE DO NOT TAKE ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR A CHILD UNTIL THEY ARRIVE AT OUR CLUB.
The Club is run Fozia and Kate, with the help of Kate. All Staff hold Paediatric First Aid certification.
Once all children have arrived and the register has been taken, we all go outside and play until 4.30PM. This allows children to get some fresh air and give them the opportunity for physical activity such as football, skipping, rounders etc. We also have areas where the children can just sit and talk outside should they be tired after their day at School. During the warmer months, we may also set up arts and craft activities outside.
We do ask that you send your child in with the appropriate clothing such as hat, coat, gloves and scarves during the winter and a hat during the summer as we will always try and get outside unless it is not safe to do so or is heavily raining.
Around 4.30PM a Snack is served for children staying past 4.30PM. Children are encouraged to make their own choices as to what they eat whilst they sit in groups overseen by a Team Member and they are encouraged to prepare their own food in line with Ofsted best practice. Snack normally consists of a choice of two of the following foods being Rolls, Sandwiches, Wraps and Cracker Bread. For fillings, there is always a choice of Ham slices, Chicken slices, Cheese, Quorn, Marmite, Jam and Honey. With every tea two varieties of Vegetables and two varieties of Fruit are offered.
Water is available throughout the entire session and during tea a choice of Water and Sugar Free Squash is provided. WE DO NOT provide biscuits or cake.
Please note that due to allergies of other children we CANNOT allow children to eat food brought in from outside the Club. Should you child have a certain food preference please inform us and we will do our best to accommodate them. We cater for all allergies and religious dietary requirements.
After Snack, the children will either have access to outside games or a choice of inside board games, arts and crafts, small world or space to sit quietly and read or do homework.
SESSIONS AND PRICES
We run many sessions to cater for most needs. Please see our Booking Forms at the bottom of this page for details
To use our Clubs you must first register with us, one form can cover both After School and Breakfast Clubs
MAKING A BOOKING
Booking Forms are normally on our website for the entire academic year. Each Booking Form covers one half of a Term.
Once registered, there are two different ways you can make a booking depending on your requirements.
Please note we reserve the right to not accept a child if we have had no booking for them and cannot accept a child that is not registered with us or who does not have on them medication they may need whilst at club. We ask that if your child does have medication such as an Epipen that you supply us with our own medication for safekeeping and you must complete and return to us a hard copy of the Administering Medicine From (Click here) along with any care plan that your child might have.
1. BOOKING ADHOC – Standard Rate
You are welcome to email or call us throughout the term with your requirements as and when you know them. Subject to availability we can offer you access to our Clubs at short notice/same day. As our Sessions are Non-Refundable and cannot be swapped for another day (see cancellation policy below), this option caters for parents who do not need the same Sessions each week or who do not know their requirements in advance. If booking for more than two Sessions at a time we ask that you still complete a Booking Form and send payment with the Booking. We appreciate sometimes children may turn up at very short notice and without a Booking Form, in these cases we will send you an invoice for payment the week after. Please note we reserve the right to not accept a child if we have had no booking for them and cannot accept a child that is not registered with us or who does not have on them medication they may need whilst at club. We ask that if your child does have medication such as an Epipen that you supply us with our own medication for safekeeping.
PLEASE NOTE that until further notice we will ONLY be able to add adhoc bookings if notified to us by 23.59 on the Thursday in the week PRIOR to the required adhoc session. This is because we have lower capacity during COVID 19.
2. BOOKING IN ADVANCE – Early Bird Rate
For those parents who know their requirements for the coming Half Term and want to guarantee their place, we can offer a Discounted Early Bird Rate. Simply complete a Booking Form at the bottom of this page and return it to us with payment before that Term's Early Bird Booking Deadline. Early Bird Deadline are shown on the form and on our website. To qualify for the Early Bird Rate payments must be made by the dates shown on the Booking Form.
Note: You can mix both the above approaches to best suit your circumstances. If you are waiting for the list of your School's Clubs to be announced, you can book in advance at the Early Bird Rate the days you know there will be no clubs and then add extra days later at the Standard Rate.
Our Terms and Conditions of booking which can be found on our booking forms apply to all bookings made, irrespective of the method used to book.
Because our aim is to always have space available for parents that book in before the start of a Half a Term so that parents have faith in childcare always being available, we will look at the number of bookings at the beginning of the coming Half Term and staff accordingly, rather than setting a maximum number of places based on a fixed number of staff. For this reason we do not Refund or Swap any Bookings made for the current Half Term once it has begun.
You can however Cancel or Amend any Bookings made for any future dates beyond the current Half of Term, free of charge, up until the first day of the Half of Term the Booking relates too.
Please note due to Safeguarding no mobile phone or any form of Tablet is allowed at our club, except for the club mobile phone which does not have a camera.
BOOKING FORMS - ( 1 child only per form, if booking for two or more children please use a separate form per child).
