‘Play a little… laugh a lot… be yourself’
At Joeys Out of school club we place fun and friendship at the heart of everything that we do. We aim to provide a friendly, welcoming and happy environment in which children can be themselves and make their own choices, whether that means relaxing with a book or a board game at the end of a busy school day, or tackling a daring ‘Survival Challenge’ obstacle course at one of our holiday club theme weeks.
We try to involve our children in planning their own events and activities, which regularly include baking/cooking, crafts of all kinds, science experiments, outdoor games, dance,team games etc.
Our highly qualified staff work hard to ensure all children feel welcome and included, whilst acknowledging that the out of school Club is an ideal place for them to gain increasing independence and make their own choices within a safe and stimulating environment.
Joeys Out of School Club is part of a registered charity named Milnthorpe Family Centre who also run Joeys Nursery.
The Club is held in Milnthorpe Primary School hall, which provides us with a wonderful space to carry out lots of exciting activities. We also have the use of the school playground which gives us a brilliant outdoor area for activities, games and free play whatever the weather.
