Smiles Breakfast and After School Club

Smiles breakfast club typically runs from 07:30am until the start of school in the Baxter Hall. Children have access to a buffet style breakfast consisting of a selection of healthy cereals, fruit, toast with a choice of spreads, yogurt and a choice of juice (the odd treat may slip in occasionally). Children are encouraged to develop their Independence by making their own choices and serving themselves with adult supervision and support.

The breakfast session is a very social one and staff enjoy joining the children for their own breakfast. When children have finished eating and playing, the session is finished off with a team game to get everyone feeling vibrant and alert ready to start the school day.

After school club starts just as soon as the school bell rings. Children meet Smiles staff (reception and infant children are collected from their classrooms) for registration and then help themselves to a healthy, substantial snack, and discuss how their day has been and what activities they would like out for that session.

The children have the opportunity to take part in a variety of fun activities that will encourage physical, creative and imaginative play. Children can let off steam with a team game or chill out in the chill zone after a busy day at school.
