Latest Updates

We are happy to announce that this year our summer playscheme again be open for children from other schools. Although, we will be running a little different and limiting numbers we will have most all fun themed activities running with a different exciting theme planned for each day. Places can be booked by registering as a parent on our online booking system IPAL and you can access this through the link on our website. Click register and book now from our front page and please watch the short videos for help if needed. From your parent profile you can book and pay for childcare via voucher, bank transfer or simply using a debit or credit card. 

All new families need to register through our online booking system to access our services which does have an app which can be used through any mobile device. If anyone is experiencing any difficulties Marie is always available to contact for support. 

Before lockdown so much had happened, we were Ofsted inspected on 6th January achieving the best grade possible, albeit not Outstanding as this grade does no longer exists for wraparound childcare and instead we are 'Met with no recommendations' (which is Outstanding really), we are however allowed to keep out Outstanding logo which is pleasing as we feel we really deserve to get the recognition for our hard work and commitment. 

 Our new system ensures all parents can easily view our spaces and book and pay for childcare when they need it using any device. This gives parents control of bookings and easily making sure the information we need is updated. It also means that we will be able to communicate with our families more efficiently, have electronic sign in and out for all children staff & club visitors and easily be able to view registers which flag up allergies, specific needs and daily notes from parents. Marie had spent many months researching the different systems available and we are confident that we have the best for our setting needs.

How we are providing care throughout the pandemic is very different in these current times. Children are however, being provided with the same excellent opportunities to play within their bubble groups with plenty of toys & activities that are either sanitised or quarantined after use and lots of outdoor play. Staff will be wearing visors and parents are asked to wear masks when collecting their children. A lot of hard work has gone into providing systems to keep everyone safe and our setting open inline with all the government guidelines.
