Helping Hands: before and after school club
Helping Hands at Holy Name School opened in September 2009 and is registered to provide childcare for children aged 11 and under.
The club aims to provide a safe, secure and relaxed environemnt for the children in our care. We endeavour to provide an atmosphere and activities similar to those found within the home. All of our staff recieve regular, on-going training.
Helping Hands run before and after school in term time and we run a play-scheme through all school holidays except for the Christmas holidays.
opening hours during term time:
The Breakfast Club is open 07:30 am - 08:55 am.
After School Club is open until 05:45 pm weekdays
We offer a wide range of activities, incorporating cookery, craft, board games, reading, imaginary play, construction, sport, junk modelling, Wii games, painting, arts and crafts and many more including our clubs favourite rounder’s! During their time at the club children choose activities that they wish to participate in.
A snack and drink are provided each day; however this is not intended to substitute for a main evening meal that the child may receive at home.
We promote independence, by encouraging the children to prepare their own snacks, and to clear away after themselves. We use fresh ingredients and follow statutory guidelines. Fresh drinking water is available at all times. Individual dietary requirements and parental preferences are met wherever possible. We recognize the importance of healthy nutrition for children delivered in a calm, friendly setting. We allow children to decide when they are ready to eat, but request that food be consumed whilst sitting at the snack table.
