The Club starts at 3.15pm. All children booked into the Club come to a meeting point in the Learning Zone. Children from the Reception Class will be collected from their classroom and taken to the Learning Zone. Once at the Club the register is taken and the children have a chance to settle down, relax and have a drink. Weather permitting they can play in the outside area or with an activity inside. At around 4.00pm to 4.15pm the children will have their snack followed by a planned activity.
