Leapfrog breakfast and after school club was formed in September 1998 and has proven very popular, from starting with just a few children we can now take up to 50 (4 to 11 year olds).
The club was originally run by a committee but since January 2007 the Club has been run by Northern Parade Infant School Governors, subsequently Northern Parade School’s Governing Body (since Federation in 2010).
At Leapfrog we aim to:
- provide a welcoming and all inclusive club for all children, which Parents are confident in using.
- an environment in which children’s personal, social and educational development can flourish.
- a safe, caring and enjoyable place of play.
At club the children enjoy a variety of indoor and outdoor activities. For example;
Construction, Lego, Arts and Crafts, knitting and sewing, role play area, Computers, Wii, Notepads, Football table, Table Tennis table, Snooker/Pool table and climbing frame.
The children organise their own activity lists and know that they can only go on popular activities for twenty minute intervals.
There is a quiet area for the children and a television corner with comfy settees. We are lucky at club to be able to utilise the Junior School playground, Adventure play area and grass area after School – these are used everyday weather permitting.
There is also plenty of adult support for those children wishing to complete homework tasks or revise for spelling tests.
