After School Club
What we do
Cedar Park After School and Holiday Play Scheme is run only for children who attend Stoke Bishop Primary School.
The play scheme is a happy, secure and stimulating place that leaves you without the day-to-day problems of after school or holiday childcare. An extra bonus is that your child gets to know children throughout the school.
During term time
We will collect your child from school and escort them to the play scheme building which is on the school playing field, (behind the croquet club).
We offer a drink and toast/fruit, but if you decide that a little more is needed then you can provide a snack or packed tea.
Supervised activities include:
Arts and crafts
Organised games (indoor and out)
Occasionally - A bit of cookery
We also have a “chill-out” room
During school holidays
You deliver your child to the play scheme. We put on a programme of activities with something different to try every day. We even plan a trip to a local park or a nature walk (weather permitting).
We don’t provide lunch or snacks and so you’re free to give whatever packed lunch and snacks you/they wish.
Your child can come to the play scheme after attending a school club. You just need to let us know which one they are attending.
How much will it cost?
Cost per child
We would encourage you to have someone who can step in and pick your child up for you if you are likely to be delayed beyond 6.00pm. Otherwise there is an instant fine of £1.00 for every minute late.
If you need to cancel an afterschool session we will need two weeks notice otherwise you will still be charged the full rate, during the holidays there is no cancellation time, whatever you book you will have to pay for even if children do not attend. This is to cover all staff costs that are pre booked.
To cancel a place permanently then we need four weeks notice in writing.
If your child is sick and won’t be attending play scheme then you need to inform us before the end of the school day. You will still be charged for the place that day.
Who runs the play scheme?
Paid workers run the play scheme on a day-to-day basis. These workers are carefully chosen to provide a happy, stimulating and caring environment for your children.
A voluntary management committee oversees and administers the scheme. It is made up of parents who have children at the school.
We would encourage you to volunteer to join the committee. It’s not onerous and without it the play scheme couldn’t exist!
