Welcome to The Kaleidoscope Club! We offer wrap-around care for children attending Cromer Road school, New Barnet. We collect the children at 2.50pm and 3.10pm during the cold winter months and walk them to the club in the Upper rooms at Lyonsdown Hall. Please collect by 6.15pm from the side entrance in the car-park, not through the main hall entrance.
Please book your sessions online prior to attending. Sessions mid week are getting full and your child must be booked in to reserve your place, Please allow 24 hours to cancel and re-schedule your session where possible. Please use the 'book online' button above if you are already registered, or copy this link to get to the schools buddy booking site:
We are a warm, friendly and inclusive club providing after school care to children aged 4-11 years. We primarily serve Cromer Road school in New Barnet in the Upper rooms at Lyonsdown Hall.
We set up the club with the aim to help working parents alleviate the stress of school pick ups and after school care. Our research suggested that parents and carers needed:
Later opening times for collecting their children. We are open until 6.15pm.
A hot dinner to be provided to their children. We have a flexible menu available on request.
A convenient location for collection - Our venue is a 2 minute walk from New Barnet train station and there are nearby bus stops that serve High Barnet Overground.
Parking available at the location.
Help with reading and homework! We have a Tuesday and Thursday homework club.
A quiet area for children who are tired after their school day as well as stimulating and fun activities provided.
At The Kaleidoscope Club we follow themes in order to stimulate the children's' learning and celebrate our diversity.
Children are provided with stories, art and crafting, construction and puzzle toys, a games room for traditional play such as football, darts, table tennis and hide and seek. We have a reading and quieter area and hold a homework club on Tuesday and Thursdays. Our reading area has a lending library and children are encouraged to take home the books they borrow to ingrain a love of reading. We have a strong internet safety lead and anti-bullying policies.
We will enjoy our animal session in January and a flower making class in February so watch this space for more information!
We aim to work with parents to keep their children safe and happy whilst in our care. Please do approach us with any specific needs or concerns that we will try and address.
