Here at BIPS we provide an after school child care facility called KIDZONE, from 2pm until 5pm, during term time. We are available to 6pm by prior arrangement. KIDZONE is not available on the final day of each day of each school term. It has become very popular with both busy parents and pupils, who look forward to meeting up with friends and making new friends from different classes.
On arrival at KIDZONE the children are offered a healthy snacks fruit, cereal, milk, water and toast. These are also available later on in the session if children wish to avail of them. Children get the chance to complete written homework with us at KIDZONE. This frees up their time at home in the evening. After homework, the children need some down time to just chill out and relax. We provide computers for games, colouring in, TV programmes, books to read and outdoor/hall play for games such as dodgeball, football and basketball. Whenever possible we go outside - either to the playground or to Newland.
Each Friday is Friday Treat Day when the children do not have homework to complete and get 2 hours of activity time from 2pm to 4pm.
Once a month we organise a Fantastic Fun Friday. On these days our dedicated leaders organise fantastic activities, including some special end of month sweet treats for the children to enjoy.
Here are some of the Fantastic Fun Friday activities we have organised recently:
*Movie Mania - This is a cinema styled treat - watching a fun movie, with popcorn, milk and water included.
*Scrap Box Challenge - The children get their hands on all sorts of junk materials and invent new things - a firm favourite with our KIDZONERS!!
*Chocolate Madness - Where the children get to be Willy Wonka for the day and design their own chocolate bars.
*Mad Scientists - Make slime using a range of different ingredients including; hair conditioner, food colouring and PVA glue.
*Outdoor Trips - We like to get the children out in the fresh air, so weather permitting we arrange trips to the park and beach. In the summer term we sometimes stop for an ice-cream too.
*KIDZONE's Got Talent - We know that every child in our care has an amazing talent. During this fun afternoon, we have kids showing off dance moves, singing karaoke, juggling and even showing off some football tricks. Look out HOLLYWOOD!!
Our KIDZONE staff all work in the school as class room assistants and have Food Hygiene Certificates.
