The Woodlands Club
Our values at Knowles are very important to us and so, The Woodlands Club is run by the school and not an outside provider. Our dedicated school staff run the wrap-around care at Knowles, ensuring that Breakfast and After School Club has the same ethos as the rest of the school, ensuring the best care for your children.
Our high quality affordable childcare is run by three members of our school staff team. All of our staff have a DBS check and hold a First Aid Certificate.
We offer a fantastic array of play and educational activities for your child to participate in both before and after school. Children can take part in art and craft activities, baking, outdoor free play, mindfulness opportunities, indoor games and the facility to complete their homework.
At The Woodlands Breakfast Club, children have access to a variety of healthy and filling breakfast options. We also offer a healthy snack to keep children going through to tea time in The Woodlands After School Club.
There is a flat rate for all wrap around care sessions, you may choose to drop off or collect earlier or later but the cost will be the same.
Children collected late after 5:45 will be subject to a fine of £5. We expect all children to be collected on time, therefore please ensure your child is collected promptly by the end of their booked session.
If you are unable to collect your child on time you must make alternative arrangements and contact the school ASAP to let us know. Consistent late collections may result in your child’s place being withdrawn.
How to sign up
You will be able to sign up to and pay for both clubs through Schoolcomms. This must be completed monthly with your required child care. Please ensure that you book your required sessions a month in advance by 3:30pm on the last Thursday of each month at the latest. If you are late booking you will be charged an EMERGENCY CHILDCARE RATE or you may be turned away due to availability. If you pay using childcare vouchers, then please let us know at the time of booking and send us a receipt confirmation so we are aware you have transferred the funds across to us.
You will be invoiced based on the number of sessions booked at the start of the month, any amendments to this care will need to be made 1 month in advance. All bookings are final and will need to be paid for even if your child misses the session.
