The Downley After School Club offers a safe, stimulating and, above all, fun environment for children aged from 4 to 11 years. The play environment allows the children a selection of structured activities and play opportunities which take place both in- and out-doors, weather permitting. We offer art & craft, board games, construction activities, role play, clay modelling, pool table, ball games and much more; naturally, the children are free to choose the activities that interest them most.
Play opportunities are risk-assessed and evaluated to ensure that the safety of the children is balanced with the enjoyment and fun element. Qualified and experienced (and police checked) manager/playworkers understand the importance of play and how this impacts on the developmental needs of children as individuals.
The quality of our care provision is paramount for us and playworkers receive ongoing training with this in mind. Our Club is registered with OFSTED (where legally required to do so), and inspected in accordance with the law & guidance surrounding the care of children in a play environment. Parents/Carers are required to complete registration forms for their child before first attendance: full terms and conditions and a comprehensive list of policies driving our operations are available at the Club.
The Committee meet on a monthly basis during school term times to discuss any issues that may arise and in order to keep up to date with new policies from various governing bodies.
