My name is Alison (Mum of Olivia Y6) I am a fully qualified Ofsted registered childminder and I run the L'After club.
The main aim at L’After Club is to provide a warm safe environment for the children, where they can come to relax and have fun. There are planned activities each day, including outdoor and indoor games. We have lots of toys and books that the children can choose from. The activities are adult and/or child led. The children are able to choose if they want to join in with the activities or to relax and do something they want to do.
Snacks will be provided and will always be healthy; every now and again we will bake some nice treats, and I will always try to keep sugar levels low. At home I cook everything from scratch. The children can get involved in the cooking if they wish. Here is a small example of some of the snacks I will provide:
Selection of fresh fruits – I store and make jams for the club. Last month we made 4 jars of blackberry jam and the children designed and made the labels and are enjoying eating the fruits of their work.
Homemade baked beans on toast
Crackers, cheese, veg sticks & hummus
Toast and jam, honey, just butter or marmite.
Banana bread, blueberry cake, roman apple cake, homemade mini pizzas, homemade sausage rolls, fish finger sandwiches, tortillas and tuna melts. A selection of fruits is also served at every snack time.
