The school is set in parkland, located in a particularly rural area of Caterham, St Francis School is located within a two minute drive from the center of Caterham.
The club is set within the school grounds of St Francis Catholic Primary School. It has great facilities for a fun packed day, with outdoor playground area's which can be used for anything from Football to Cricket to general outdoor activities, Trim trail playground, fields and indoor sports hall to keep the day running even if wet. We have parkland area for treasure hunts, hide & seek and other games during break and lunch periods with Classrooms for the creative activities.
All staff are recruited on the basis they are mature, are great with children, have experience working within holiday clubs and a great attitude with the welfare of all children at heart.
Each member of staff runs one section of the club for example, the head football coach will run all football sessions.
All staff are either teachers undertaking teacher training, qualified sports coaches or qualified childcare personnel. All undergo Criminal Records Bureau (DBS) checks.
To maintain our high standards, we operate our staff ratio for all ages at 1:10 ensuring quality and safety throughout all activities. By allowing a maximum of 50 per day this offers a small friendly environment.
Child safety is of most importance to the club and that's why there is always a qualified First Aider and lifeguard (if applicable) on duty throughout the day. Having now introduced our collection word system and ID proof on pickup, our safety levels are even higher.
Whizz Kids is on the Early years and Compulsory childcare register allowing us to accept all childcare vouchers and child tax credits. Ofsted have guidelines which we must adhere to at all times, we are also inspected by Ofsted from time to time.
Escape & Invasion
Arts and Crafts
There is also a selection of warm-up activities before the day begins, including Tag, Corners, Fruit Salad, Name Games and Sharks & Fishes.
The schedule changes dynamically depending on the circumstances such as the weather or the popularity of the activity. We also take suggestions for games from the children.
Activities are suited to each age range and children are grouped up based on their age and friendships to ensure all children can partake in all activites and have a great time.
The sessions vary from indoor creative activities to outdoor sports activities, the day is balanced so we can operate rain or shine. Children are asked to bring their own packed lunch to ensure enough food is provided to last the day. Lunch is eaten in a group under supervision. We have an ID and collection word on pickup for parents peace of mind.
Half days are an option, however, a full day will be charged.
