Our After School Care provision, known as Thruppers, is committed to working in partnership with parents and carers to provide safe, stimulating and enjoyable childcare for children.
We aim to help parents to balance work commitments and family life by providing convenient, affordable and high quality after school care during school term time.
We are fortunate to have a highly experienced and committed staff team at Thruppers. Thruppers is open to children aged 4 -11 years old who attend Thrupp School. The After School Care is open during school term times, except for INSET days or school closures.
Sessions run each school day:
3.15pm until 4.15pm. - £4.80 per child per session (including refreshments)
3.15pm until 5.30pm. - £8.60 per child per session (including refreshments)
A range of activities are available for the children. Organised activities may be on offer but the emphasis is on child-centred and self-directed play. We believe that play is an important part of a child's development and the adult's role is to create activities to enhance play opportunities. The children are provided with a healthy snack and drinks during the session.
We offer a varied programme of activities including:
- Art table
- Role play
- Construction activities - Lego, Knex, etc
- Use of climbing area
- Outdoor physical play - e.g. football, tennis, ride on toys, skipping etc
- Computer games
- Books and puzzles
