Welcome to Wigwam out of school childcare club based at Wychall Primary School in Northfield, Birmingham. We are proud of the flexible, high quality care we offer Northfield children between the ages of 4 to 12 years old (we also have some places available for rising 4’s during school holidays).
At Wigwam 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 are Ofsted registered and fully inspected, our latest inspection report (January 2015) said…
Overall the quality of the provision is OUTSTANDING.
Children have formed extremely strong and trusting relationships with staff members, who know them very well and understand their individual needs and personalities. Consequently children feel very safe in the setting and are confident to share concerns with staff and to participate in experiences.
The quality of teaching is outstanding as staff have the highest expectations of themselves and children. Children contribute to the planning of experiences and their views and ideas are actively sought and utilised to make improvements.
Leaders and Managers show an excellent knowledge and understanding of the Early Years Foundation Stage and their legal responsibilities. Rigorous monitoring and review of policies, procedures and staff practice ensures that children’s safety and well-being are always afforded the utmost priority.
