Why do children enjoy coming to St Mary’s Kids Club?

Because our experienced staff LISTEN to them, TALK to them and WATCH to see what they enjoy doing best. This means that when our team gets together each week to plan our activities, we know that we will create an exciting programme, which is tailored to provide FUN for all the children. The children can enjoy a range of activities such as: Arts and crafts, outdoor play, reading, construction (Lego, building blocks etc) small world play (train set, dolls house etc) imaginative play (puppet theatre, dressing up etc) T.V. time, games and help with homework (if requested). St Mary’s Kids Club aims to promote healthy eating and the snacks we offer reflect this. The children are offered a drink and snack at both 15:15 and 17:15, we realise how hungry children get!

EARLY YEARS FOUNDATION STAGE (EYFS) We adhere to the Ofsted standards for the Early Years Foundation Stage, which exist for school clubs who support children up to the term before they are six.
