We offer an Out of School Care service for our school-age children, which offers a safe and stimulating place for your child to play and take part in activities both indoors and outdoors.
It is vital as part of our Indigo values that our children still continue to learn and grow whilst having fun under our care with our carefully curated activity plans created by our highly skilled team.
We recognise that in order for children to learn they need to feel safe, happy and secure which is why there is a focus on learning alongside care. We work hard to deliver an interesting, exciting and imaginative learning programme full of play experiences both indoors and outdoors that encourages your child to achieve their own potential as a learner. Children are supported to become successful learners and grow in confidence, becoming more self-assured and responsible citizens that are effective contributors in our community.
Early Learning and Childcare research has proven that young children learn best when engaged in active learning. Learning through play will involve approaches such as spontaneous free play, responsive play, planned play, play which involves investigating, exploring and problem-solving, play which focuses on learning through events and life experiences and some focused learning and teaching.
Our Out of School Care services offer term time and holiday time solutions to childcare. We offer the flexibility to book term time, school holiday time or both.
