After School Club
“I like snack and the different games that we play. I also get to have quiet time if I want.” – YP Quote
“I love arts and crafts, bin bag fashion, making jewellery, painting nails, playing on the Wii and making our own snack. I also enjoy the treasure hunts and group games like duck duck goose. If it’s nice weather we go outside planting, playing on the slide or mini bowling with my friends. I miss After School Club when it’s the holidays.” – YP Quote
“The After School Club is a chance for me to meet up with friends, playing on the Wii and relax. I also get to prepare and eat snack!!” – YP Quote
“I know my son has a good time, he is safe and the staff really know him. I like that they get to feedback on the activities that they have done that afternoon and tell the staff if they liked or didn’t like it. I also like that they look at everyone’s ability and interests and make sure they are all fully included (if they want to be). When I collect him, there is always someone there to tell me what he has done that afternoon and how he has been.” – Parent Quote
