Space Base Out of School club has been running for over 20 years. It is set within the Regen Centre. We are registered and inspected through Ofsted. Emma Gilmer is our manager and has been in this post from May 2018. Emma Lee is our Deputy and has been in this post from June 2018. We provide care and activities that support children’s natural stages of development and interests for the ages of 4 (attending Reception Class) up to 11 years.
Our indoor and outdoor provision provides a fun approach to learning and spaces for children to relax or catch up on home-work. Discussions with school and children feed into our planned activities ensuring that activities are purposeful and extend learning and interests.
Here is a selection of our planned activities that we offer:
|Facts on Cities and Rivers.
Can you build your own using Lego or box modelling?
Looking back at historic events (WW2 etc.)
|National Memory Day for Dementia.
brain trainer games
|World Water Day.
|International Waffle Day||Design your own Football Kit or Fashion Wear for Brazil||National Paella Day.
Enjoy the taste of Spain and activities
|Mother’s Day cards and crafts||Make the Eiffel Tower to celebrate its anniversary|
At our After School Club we provide opportunities for sports and for children to release some energy. We strongly believe in helping children to enjoy sports, physical activity and outdoor fun. Throughout the year we hold fun projects for children to take part in. Children enjoy working as a team to produce some fantastic events. Children are given the opportunity to show off their talents and also design and make their own items. We involve the children in cooking. Many of our favourite things to make include our own pizzas, making cookies and cooking a range of foods to celebrate different cultural and religious festivals and events. Children are given the opportunity to grow their own fruit and vegetables and eat the produce that they have grown.
Before School (0730-0900) £3.90 per hour / part hour
After School (1515-1800) £3.90 per hour / part hour
Fees for holiday club sessions and the dates / times we are open will be advertised locally and within our newsletters. At present holiday club sessions are between the hours of 8am-6pm and are charged at a rate of £25 per day which includes snack (fruit) and drinks, lunches/tea must be provided.
Space Base provides breakfast from 0730 – 0815 and a light tea at 1600. Breakfast includes a range of different toasted options such as bagels or fruit toast as well as cereals and milk. Please note that we provide a light meal at tea time so children will need to eat again at home. Our tea menus include sandwiches, tea cakes, savoury rice, pasta served with a variety of fruit / vegetable sticks.
The setting makes meals a social time at which children and adults eat together. Do tell us about your child’s dietary needs and we will make sure that these are met. Our cook ensures that food and drink are correctly prepared and are nutritious. We comply with all dietary and religious requirements working in partnership with parents at all times.
