The Play Shelter’s curriculum focuses on children learning through interaction with other children and adults. Where After School Clubs are distinct from school because of their voluntary nature of attendance, the importance lies in play experiences and children making choices within the constraints of appropriate and resourced facilities, to ensure that children's learning and development are formed through positive experiences.
The Play Shelter aims to provide a safe, stimulating and fun environment where children develop socially, physically, morally, intellectually, emotionally and creatively.
The children who attend our After School Clubs are supported in learning new skills and developing their potential. Where emerging skills are identified, the children are encouraged to progress in these areas.
Our social education programme is based on informal educational opportunities to expand on children's prior knowledge in order to facilitate learning.
The Play Shelter provides a curriculum which offers activities to children within the following key areas:
Arts & Crafts
Sports, Health & Fitness
Music & Drama
Social skills & Safety skills
Cookery & Nutrition.
Understanding of the world
The program of activities respond to the needs and abilities of infants, juniors, boys, girls, cultures and traditions.
