We are a warm, friendly, inclusive and fun club providing after school care to children aged 4-11 years. We collect children from Cromer Road Primary School for play sessions at our club in the Upper rooms at Lyonsdown Hall, New Barnet.
We set up the club with the aim to help working parents alleviate the stress of school pick ups and after school care as well as providing a safe, fun, exciting and relaxed environment for children to socialise, play and experience new skills. 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 , inspired by the childrens choices and preferences, 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 Station on the Northern Line as well as Cockfosters and Arnos Grove Stations on the Picadilly Line.
Parking is available at the hall.
Help with reading and homework! We have regular help available for reading and homework.
A quiet area for children who are tired after their school day as well as stimulating and fun activities and opportunities for child led, open ended free-play provided with a range of resources.
At The Kaleidoscope Club we use Current Events, Cultural Celebrations and Childrens Interests in order to plan our weeks to stimulate the children's play and 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. 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 an animal session and a flower arranging class as soon as the restrictions allow us to do so. Please 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.
