Zoom Club - Before and After School Club

 

 

Zoom Club is designed to be fun and exciting, but in a relaxed environment combined with an educational theme. The children will not have to compromise, they can do whatever suits them best, it is hoped children will revel in the freedom to explore and Parents/Carers will have peace of mind and can carry out their busy day knowing their child is safe, well cared for and having fun.

The Club is geared to meet the needs of Primary School Children. At the Breakfast Club children are greeted with a healthy menu including toast, fresh fruit and milk. During the after noon session children are offered a drink upon arrival and later a club supper.

At Zoom Club we appreciate the importance of quality care and hope that the environment helps children to relax and have fun, yet encourages them to develop social, physical and interactive skills through play, in a fun and informative environment.

Activities at Zoom Club are tailor made to meet the Primary School age group. It offers children the opportunity to use their independence and because we believe that every child is an individual, children are allowed to develop and grow at their own pace. Children who want to, are  given the opportunity to take ‘Time Out To Do Something Cool' in our ‘Out of School Programme'. This programme includes such activities as Indoor and Outdoor Sports & Team Events, Playstation Championships, Kids Theatre Workshops, Treasure Hunts, Computer & IT Skills, Quizzes, Back To School Discos, Fancy Dress Days, Arts & Crafts and much more. But there is also a ‘Quiet Corner', specifically for those children who don't always want to be in the ‘hub of activity' and who just want to concentrate on their homework, or relax after a hard day at school, or simply just ‘Chill Out' and do their own thing!

The activities are carefully planned to ensure individuals are encouraged to develop within their own potential through play. Outdoor activities help to develop motor skills and balance, and even the computer and console games are chosen to help encourage hand and eye co-ordination and dexterity. Whilst many activities are designed to be ready for use at The Club, creativity and imagination are not  forgotten and children are able to create their own designs on activities in the form of paints, model making, cookery and dressing up. We aim to promote acceptable behaviour within a social environment.

At Zoom Club we promote within each child that his or her beliefs and ideas are as valuable as the next person and that each child has a feeling of belonging in a friendly and fun atmosphere.

All staff at Zoom Club have excellent training and qualifications in Childcare, Education, First Aid, Food Hygiene, Fire Safety, Further Education and Management. All staff have enhanced police checks and health checks. The staff at the club are chosen for their experience, enthusiasm, kindness, personality and love of working with children.

We encourage all parents/carers to approach us with any concerns they may have regarding their child and we ensure we discuss a child's progress and care whenever staff think there is a need.
