ABC-XYZ @ Springers
ABC Breakfast Club & XYZ After School Club
Club contact number 07391 541496 Club hours only
Our aim is to run clubs where the children enjoy relaxed, free-play sessions. The sessions in the evenings include a variety of adult-led activities, as well as a choice of both indoor and outdoor games. Our sessions are planned across each half-term, with a theme to support the adult-led activities. We offer a healthy breakfast in the mornings and light snack in the evening – this will range from sandwiches, bagels, wraps and pittas with a choice of fillings, as well as the occasional hot snack of soup, baked beans, frankfurters etc.
Our rules are simple and are made to ensure the safety of each and every child – children will be encouraged to behave responsibly and to respect both staff and each other.
To enable all children to have fun safely, reasonable behaviour is essential. The Club expects and will encourage children to behave well and with respect for each other and the Club staff. Children are expected to respond to requests from staff. Repeated disobedience and/or persistent anti-social behaviour could disrupt the Club for all and consequently the Club reserves the right to exclude children whose behaviour falls below expected standards.
When booking regular sessions payment is required half termly in advance. To book complete and return the Registration Form
To ensure the children’s safety all staff have an enhanced CRB/DBS check. You can find a full list of our staff on our Staff page. A trained first aider will be available in the rare case of emergency. It is the parent/carer’s responsibility to disclose any allergies or other medical conditions and provide a local emergency contact number.

You will NOT be charged on days when the Clubs are unable to open due to pre-arranged events such as school inset days.
