WASP Club

 

Waddington After School Provision (WASP Club) is a well-managed, happy and welcoming club providing after school care  for children aged from 3 to 11 attending Waddington and West Bradford Primary School

 

WASP Club opens as soon as school finishes at 3.20pm, and parents are required to collect children by 5.45pm. It operates during term time in the main school hall. The staff are employed from 3pm to 6pm to allow time for preparation, setting up and tidying up.

 

Breakfast club is open from 7.45 - 8.45am.  

 

Sarah Williams is our WASP Club Manager with Lauren Thompson as deputy. Elaine Tasker is our Breakfast Club Supervisor and the Staff Assistants are Linda Child, Elaine Tasker,  Lauren Thompson, Ryan Hargreaves, Christine Preston, Mandy Whaites and Gianna Pickup.

 

There are lots of activities for the children to choose from. We have a different art and craft theme every night. There is a play station, gameboys, dance mat, robot, dressing up, lego and K'Nex. The children love to play outside, weather permitting - we have lots of bikes and trikes. We rotate our toys every night so the children get a variety of experiences with us.

 

The children get a drink on arrival, and a snack and drink about 4.00pm. At WASP club we pride ourselves on having a varied and healthy snack, enjoying fruit and vegetables everyday. We also cater for vegans, vegetarians as well as gluten free.

 

How to join

 

To book a regular place for your child, phone Sarah Williams, our Manager, on 07956 042220 between 3pm and 5:30pm Mon - Fri during term time only. Or pop into the club any night and have a word with a member of staff. 

 

We will provide you with the necessary admission and registration forms, and give you a copy of our policies. You must sign our register once you have read them to confirm that you agree to abide by those policies. 

 

We expect parents to commit to a regular weekly booking. But occasional ad hoc use can be accommodated on nights when we have vacancies, provided the family is registered with us in advance.

 

Fees and finances

 

The fees are £7.50 per night per child from September 2014.

 

Nursery age children will be charged at £10 per night per child. 

 

We bill half termly in advance, although we accept flexible payment arrangements if requested. There is no refund for failure to use a place on a given night, and additional nights have to be paid for as an extra.

 

We charge an annual registration fee of £5.00, which both regular and occasional users must pay when filling in admission forms. 

 

We can help parents obtain WFTCs for childcare costs, and we are registered to accept childcare vouchers (currently from Accor , Busy Bees, Fideliti and various employers)
