Froxfield CofE Primary School's after-school childcare provision is run by Cindy Groves. The provision is available from Monday to Thursday until 6pm. Places can be booked in advance or notified to the School Office by 3pm on the same day. Price is £4 per hour, charged in quarter hour slots with a discount for children making use of the full session (3.15pm – 6pm).
Cindy is a very experienced childcare worker who has managed her own nursery for many years. She is extremely well-qualified and is thrilled to be running our after-school provision at Froxfield.
Cindy plans a range of activities including arts and crafts, gardening, stories and outdoor play and will always listen to the thoughts and ideas of the children. Children are given the opportunity to experiment and challenge themselves with up-cycled and recycled materials where possible.
The club, known as Cindy’s Club, takes place on the school premises and is run under the same policies and procedures as the school. Each afternoon the session will start with a snack and drink followed by free-play or story, before moving on to the afternoon’s activity.
The children above were making natural paintbrushes using bamboo, feathers and leaves. The children fixed the items together using wire and masking tape. The children were encouraged to make a mark using their brushes and water on the pavement outside. Some children used their brushes to clean the bikes!!
