Our after school programmes in Hollyhouse and Mounttown for local children aged 4 to 11 years are designed to support the strengthening of life skills, such as resilience, creativity, resourcefulness, teamwork and leadership that are critical to a child’s whole development. Each week our programmes work with individual children in activities such as dance, music, art and games as well as supporting children with their homework and other school related activities. Additionally our staff provide opportunities for young people to learn how to use new technologies and acquire information about ways to improve health and nutrition.
Staff are conscious of designing programmes that focus on creating and fostering highly engaging social settings that will maintain the young person’s attendance and participation with the programme each day. The core characteristics of our programmes are that they are child-centred and accessible, structured but adaptable and fun for all attending.
