Important Info for Summer Holidays 2020

Covid 19

Please refer to our Covid 19 update page. You will find our current risk assessment and operating plan for term time. This will be continuously reviewed and updated in accordance with any new government guidance.

Lunches

Children who attend full day sessions will need to bring a packed lunch. Breakfast and tea are included in the price. We can not store packed lunches in a fridge so suggest you use an ice block. We do have a healthy eating policy so would encourage you to pack a healthy lunch for your children to help us with this.

Sunscreen

We do where possible spend a lot of time playing outside. There is plenty of shade in our play area thanks to some big trees, however inevitably the children spend time out in the sunshine. If you would like your children to wear sun screen please apply it before they arrive. If it will need topping up during the course of the day please send a labelled bottle with your child. You will be asked to complete a permission slip allowing the staff to apply the cream. We would encourage the  children to apply their own cream, particularly in view of aiming to keep a 2m distance where possible, but do acknowledge that for effective coverage some children will need help.

What to bring

Please ensure you provide your children with suncream, hat and coat as appropriate for our wonderful British weather.  On days when water play is scheduled please send them with a towel and a complete spare set of clothes. They do get wet, literally through to the skin sometimes. We would also suggest that children never wear best clothes to attend any sessions – we often do messy activities.

 

What not to bring

This year, due to Covid19 restrictions we are unable to allow children to bring their own toys, this includes their own hand held computer games.

Arrival and Departure Procedures

Sessions run from 8am to 6pm. If current guidelines continue to apply then we would ask you where possible to  drop your children off between 830am and 9am, when there will be a member of staff near the car park to meet you to collect your children. If you need to arrive earlier or later than this then please wait in the car park and text the club. 07941413728. A member of staff will come out to collect your children.
For pick ups if you arrive between 445pm and 515pm there will be a member of staff waiting. At all other times please remain in the car park and text the club. Please be aware of social distancing with other parents when you are in the car park. Please check back on this page before the holidays start as we will update this information if guidance changes.

It is imperative that you have completed an online application form for your child before coming to the club as this year we can not let parents on to the premises so there is no option to complete a paper form when you drop them off.

We do ask that you ensure you arrive no later than 6pm as we only have the premises until this time. Anybody collecting later will be charged £10 per 15 minutes towards staff and hire costs incurred.

 

Special Needs

Please let us know of any special needs that your child has before they attend the club.
