Welcome To Family 1st Out of School Club

Welcome to Family 1stFamily 1st provides a balanced approach to learning, giving you the peace of mind that your child will have fun as they develop socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually.

We give your child the tools to become confident and self-aware. In a caring and stimulating atmosphere, our passionate and engaging Staff gives your child endless opportunities to grow, learn, and imagine.

Family 1st teaches children life skills that go beyond reading, writing, and math like playing with toys helps develop motor skills and teaches lessons about sharing with friends.

Each activity is designed with a specific lesson or outcome in mind. In fact, our activities are designed to align with Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) that progress sequentially across seven developmental domains.

We provide a balance between choice and structured activities, between group and individual pursuits, and between carers and child-directed experiences.

Holiday Club

Summer 2017 Holiday Schedule

When school is out for a break and you need a reliable place to keep your little treasures busy, Family 1st operates a holiday play scheme, we are opened from 8am -6pm.

Holiday Club is all about your child having fun during their holidays. As all children enjoy doing different things we give them as many opportunities as possible to ensure all children are happy and enjoy their time with us.

It is important for children to structure their own play and therefore we encourage the children to initiate and direct their own activities and support them in this. However we are on hand to make sure this happens in a safe and positive way.

Holiday Club is generally for children aged up to 12 years but we do understand that sometimes both you and your children enjoy our club and would like to continue for a longer period. We know that as children grow and develop they may need activities that immerse them in an enriched social environment filled with increased challenges.

To accommodate this we have introduced a ‘Young helpers’ group to Holiday Club. Any young person who has become too old for Holiday Club, has had the introductory training, is willing to help and be part of our team and has served successfully for a trial period qualifies to be one of our young helpers. We think it's important to train young people and give them experience in taking responsibility, learning self–discipline, and gaining skills in leadership and relating with others. What our young helpers learn in Holiday Club can benefit them for life and can be a useful feature on their CV. We're happy to give them a certificate or a reference.

They are also a huge help to us in making Holiday Club run well. It is very moving to see young people who have grown up through Holiday Club being so willing and committed to serve us and the younger children.
