Out of School Care
We understand that working families may require extended childcare beyond the end of the school day.
Our Out of School Care (or After-School Care) service, known as 'The High Flyers' Club', provides flexible childcare every day throughout the session, from 3:05pm until 6:00pm, for Junior 1 to Junior 6 children.
Children partake in a programme including indoor and outdoor sporting activities, craft work, games, puzzles and countless further activities - all organised and overseen by our passionate childcare staff. Pupils can be booked in on either a regular or flexible basis, depending on the needs of our parents.
Throughout the school holidays, external organisation, 'Summer in the City', run clubs at the Senior School campus in Anniesland.
We provide a happy and supportive environment in which children and staff value one another, working together to create a happy childcare service.
We value diversity and promote an atmosphere of integrity, fairness and mutual respect, as well as having effective home and school links to enable us all to work in partnership.
In all that we do we will uphold the following values:
To provide a safe, happy, caring, stimulating and child-centred environment in which each child is respected and their individual potential is valued.
To promote positive friendships among children of different ages and year groups and give them the option to make healthy lifestyle choices.
To provide child-led, appropriate activities, both indoors and out, that promote the development of self-respect, awareness of others and independence.
To create a nurturing atmosphere, establishing positive relationships between staff, children and parents, as well as fostering links with the wider community.
To provide a quality of service, involving children and parents, that continuously improves through regular monitoring and evaluation.
To recognise the professional role our staff have, appreciating their expertise and knowledge while providing opportunities for development and training.
Our children are given the opportunity to participate in outdoor and indoor activities. Although the weather can be very unpredictable and inclement, they are encouraged to engage in active outdoor learning whenever possible.
In the playground, children are provided with ample equipment to take part in a wide range of fun games and activities, from ball games, hopscotch and skipping in the playground, to testing themselves on our climbing wall!
A structured programme of indoor activities include baking, clay modelling and craft work, while our younger children might want to get involved in imaginative play, including the use of puppets, dress-up costumes and playing in our 'house corner'.
Our children are given the opportunity to do their homework or browse the wide selection of books available in the 'library corner', while the more active might choose to enjoy a game of table tennis with their friends. Our service also provides a wide range of board games, puzzles and construction materials, enough to keep all of our young learners busy and engaged.
