Welcome to Matchborough out of school club based at Matchborough First School Academy in Redditch. We are delighted with our new partnership starting in January 2013 in order to provide our flexible, high quality care to even more of our local Redditch children between the ages of 3 to 12 years old.
During term time our popular Breakfast Club opens at 8.00am. After providing a healthy breakfast, we escort the children to their classrooms in time for school. After school we open between 3.30pm until 6pm. Children are collected from their classrooms and can then relax and unwind in our secure, yet stimulating environment. A healthy snack tea is provided and children can play with friends or start their homework if parents wish.
At Matchborough we offer a wide range of fun play activities and have access to many of the school’s facilities including the large hall and spacious playground. We use the Playwork Principles to deliver our ‘learning through play’ philosophy. We also embrace the Play Objectives which help our staff provide an interesting, challenging and suitable play environment for children.
We hope to offer a Holiday Club Monday to Friday from 8am to 6pm during school holidays. We close for the usual Bank Holidays and over the Christmas School Closure Period.
We are Ofsted registered and our very first inspection took place in September 2014
Children are happy and enjoy their time in the out of school club. Staff interactions are good and children are generally supported in their activities. Children receive a warm welcome as they arrive. They are developing their confidence in the environment because staff are starting to build positive relationships with both parents and childen.
