At Locking After School Club we aim to work on a ‘child centered’ basis, ensuring that the welfare and best interests of the child are at the core of all our aims and practices. We aim to be an inclusive club allowing opportunities for all children.
We set up activities that cover all aspects of the child’s development. However, we do encourage independence and the children are aware that any activity or equipment that the club has is available to all.
Everything we do within the club is underpinned by the recognition of the vital concept of the ‘Learning, Working and Playing Together’, especially after they have spent a long day working hard at School! Therefore, children are never forced to do things like homework, although we do provide time and support if they wish to do so.
We ensure that the level of staff interaction is appropriate for each child, taking into consideration their age, ability and developmental stage. The children have plenty of time to play independently of an adult, initiating their own activities. All staff work under the knowledge that every child is individual and they will be treated as such.
