Whether they simply want to sit quietly and read a book, enjoy some creative time at one of our art tables or play with their friends inside or outside, our after school club team will accommodate their needs and help them enjoy their time at KOOSA Kids.
We understand that at the end of a busy school day, children are often tired and may just want to chill out during their time with us. For this reason, we schedule in Free Time Zone every day, straight after school until 4.15pm and last thing (5.15pm until 6.00pm).
During Free Time Zone children are able to choose what they want to do. There is a choice of playing board games, drawing, reading, Lego, Giant Jenga, puzzles, extensive art areas, watching a DVD and Playstation Zone (at limited times), Homework areas (optional) or just simply relaxing with friends.
Between the two Free Time Zones, the children may either choose to take part in a group activity from our Discovery & Endeavour Zone, or have supervised Free Play, utilising the extensive range of equipment we have available at each of our after school clubs. Weather permitting, we always aim to take the children outside during their time with us.
Each after school club session gives children the option to take part in an organised activity from either our Discovery or Endeavour Zone.
There are hundreds of kids activities to choose from and these might include Clay Moulding, Lego Building, Cricket, Hockey, Golf, Football, Relays, Parachute Games, Bug Hunting, Painting / Drawing, Role Play and much, much more!
The group as a whole will decide each afternoon which activity to play. Alternatively, we offer free play as an organised activity, where the children choose exactly what they wish to take part in from a selection of equipment made available by the staff.
On top of the activities on offer each day in our Free Time and Discovery & Endeavour Zones, we also arrange occasional visits from community groups in the local area. For instance, visits from Local Fire and Police Crews have been a big hit with the children at our after school clubs in the last few years!
The crews who attend are fantastic. Often the children are given the chance to sit in the fire engine, try on the uniform and accessories and even operate the hoses! They really do have a fabulous time when the emergency services arrive!
Additionally, we support national charity events like Children in Need and Red Nose Day as well as awareness campaigns such as Road Safety Awareness Week and World Book Day. Where possible, we will also give children the opportunity to enter national competitions, e.g. the Games Inventor Competition.
