Huggie Bears Family Childcare is aware that the school hours don’t always suit busy parents who are trying to juggle work with a commute and the school run. We aim to provide one location for drop-off and collection, we’ll arrange the rest! We can arrange drop-off and collection to and from most of the local schools (please contact us with the name of your child's school to enquire if we offer a service for your child's school). We will also provide a light, nutritious tea so, if you need to pick-up a little later, you don’t need to worry about missing mealtimes.
Our Breakfast/After School sessions cater for children from Reception age up until 12 years of age. Children can attend the Breakfast Club from 8.00am onwards (Before 8:00am prior arranged where feasible – Early Bird Session), we can then provide breakfast before taking them on to school. Our After School Club means that we can collect children from school at the relevant time and bring them back to play and/or do their homework. We provide an After School Club for children with tea and they are able to stay with us until closing at 6.00pm (After 6:00pm prior arranged where feasible - Evening Bird Session). Our Breakfast Club and After School Club is available during term time for children in attendance at our Breakfast/After School Club.
The Breakfast Club, After-School Club and Holiday Club offer a wide range of activities, games and sports suitable for children of all ages. Whilst, providing your child with a chance to choose how they wish to spend their time with us and allow them to participate in physical activities both indoors and outdoors.
Here at Huggies Bears Family Child Care Before and After school club we are committed to giving your child a fun environment where they can explore their creativity and enjoy new experiences with their friends.
We consider that the children should see the club as a fun place to be and not an extension of school and the school day. With both indoor and outdoor experiences to enjoy each day being planned around the preferences of the children and ideas that they put forward. Ultimately, it is each child’s personal choice as to what they would like to do each day with adult guidance.
Huggie Bears Family Childcare provide childcare provision for children during all school holidays up to the age of 12 years. We operate this service throughout all school holidays. This includes half term holidays as well school holidays and inset training days! We provide activities and projects that are planned in advance and linked to a specific topic and have specific learning objectives behind each one. Examples of projects would include Science Week, Countries, Pirates, Dinosaurs and many more.
All sessions are evaluated so we are able to record the children’s involvement and learning as well as enjoyment! You will receive feedback at the end of the session on your children’s day.
These activities and projects are all appropriate for the varying age ranges of children that attend the Holiday Club.
Activities and projects range from
- Craft sessions
- Cookery activities
- Team games
- Model making using various materials
- Educational board games
- Role-play dressing up
- Musical activities (instruments) working with rhythm

As well as the activities and projects mentioned above we try when ever possible to take the children to the park, and local places of interest.
