Welcome to Langdale School Care Club
Our primary aim in Care club is to provide HIGH QUALITY child care both before and after school and during the school holiday periods, providing a safe, stimulating and welcoming environment.
The facility is seen as allowing all parents/carers the opportunity to fully participate in the work place without having concern of arranging child care outside the confines of the school environment.
Our Early Years childcare provides a warm, secure and educational environment for children aged 2-4 to learn and develop, whilst providing parents with a childcare facility that enables them to continue to work, with the knowledge that their child is safe, cared for, and on the beginning of their Langdale learning journey.
Please take a look at our class pages for more information.

Early Years Foundation Stage [EYFS]
We comply with all requirements for children who come into this age group e.g. up to 31st August after the child's fifth birthday. We work closely with the school as your child's main provider, to ensure good communication about your child's development is shared between different settings.
Breakfast & Snacks
We provide , cereals, toast, pancakes, crumpets, tea cakes, spreads, yoghurts, fruit and a drink for children attending our breakfast club before 8.20am. During the afternoon a healthy snack is offered each day. We encourage the children to drink plenty and offer diluted fruit juice, milk or water. Drinking water is available at all times. During the Holiday Club, breakfast is provided until 8.30am, and parents/carers are asked to send in a packed lunch for their child/ren. Before and during the time that children are eating we promote good hygiene and encourage good table manners, quiet conversation and ask the children to eat their savoury food first.
We provide a varied range of activities to make sure there is always something that will interest everyone. Resources are provided to reflect a balanced view of the world and appreciation of the rich diversity of our society.
We also have use of the schools extensive outdoor areas and therefore feel that it is important that the children are able to play outside wherever possible.
