Morning, After School and Holiday Club

Before and after school care at Shade School is provided by M&A Club, an independent, Ofsted registered business run by Natalie Naylor and her team.  All lead staff are NVQ qualified, first aid trained and undertake regular update training as needed.

Our Provision 

We offer a wide range of activities, both indoors and outdoors for the children.  Our indoor activities include role play, playdough, mark making, construction, jigsaws, music, board games, arts and crafts and much more.  We try to get outside as often as possible and have a wide range of games and activities depending on the weather.

The Club’s flexible planning is designed to provide a range of opportunities for children to learn through play. Our team use praise and encouragement to promote our young children’s self-esteem and confidence.

"The manager and staff are very committed and well qualified and as a result, they provide a good variety of interesting and stimulating learning opportunities that effectively complement those of the school."

Open Door Policy

Prospective parents and carers are always welcome to come and look around, either by arrangement or unannounced.

We have a good rapport with our parents; we make time to discuss what each child has done in the Club when the child is collected.

Our children are greeted by a warm and friendly face from regular staff who work hard to get to know each individual child.


Holiday Club

Holiday Club is a more relaxed version of our term-time care.  It is the children's holiday and as much as possible we want them to choose their activities and have a chance to relax.
