holiday clubs - your first day


At the Club

All new children will be introduced to the 'new child' playworker who will be dedicated to ensuring they have a great day at the club. This person will introduce them to similarly aged children and show them around the club.

Parents are welcome to spend as long or little time as they like when they drop their child at the club. If a parent wants to stay to check their child has settled in, they are more than welcome to do so.

We will have all your contact details at the club, and will contact you if your child has any concerns. You are more than welcome to call the club mobile at any time to ensure your child is settling into the club happily.

Your Child

The team will introduce children to the activities and will be guided by the children as to how much support they need. Children all respond differently to being somewhere new - some children will need support from adults to encourage them to participate, others will come in and start playing straight away. Our team will respond to each child individually to help them get the most out of the club.

If your child has any specific needs, the club Co-ordinator will be happy to discuss them with you.

The First Day

For some, the first day at Holiday Club can be a daunting experience for children and/or their parents, whilst other children can come into the club without a backwards glance at their parents!

Our team is there to ensure every child has a great day at the club and we love it when they don't want to go home at the end of it!

Getting to Know Your Child

We start getting to know your child before they even enter the club.

The team has a meeting every day before the start of the session and they go through the day's register. All new children are marked on the register so the team are able to easily identify anyone who has not been to one of our clubs before.

They will read your child's registration form and make sure that they are familiar with what your child's likes and dislikes are.

Children in the Reception Class fall into our our Early Year Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework.
