We understand that many parents need to work, or that school drop-off and pick-up times sometimes don't fit with other commitments. Treehouse provides a popular breakfast and after-school club provision for all pupils at Birdwell School, from nursery through to year 6, allowing parents flexibility in their working day.
Our provision provides children with a stimulating, supervised environment where they learn through play. Alongside a team of experienced play leaders, Treehouse is managed and run by Andrea Hanham. Andrea has been a member of the Birdwell team for over 25 years and has vast experience in working with children. Most of our Treehouse staff work at Birdwell during the day so are a familiar face to the children.
Both our breakfast and after-school clubs are situated within the main school building, where there is ample room for the children to play and with direct access to a safe outside space for outdoor play. Children are divided into three groups within the space, according to age.
On arrival, all children sit down for a snack and drink together. Weather permitting, we then go outside for active play with an assortment of outdoor equipment, such as bats and balls, beanbags, hoops or skittles. We also have a play pod with a whole host of resources for imaginative play.
Between 4.30pm and 5pm we head back inside where the children can take part in a range of activities. These can vary depending on the time of year, but some examples include:
Please go to https://birdwellschool.schoolipal.co.uk/ to register your child. By registering you will gain access to our booking system for both breakfast and after-school clubs. In order to book sessions, you will need to have a credit on your account - from either a card payment or childcare vouchers.
Please note, Reception children are only able to access breakfast and after-school sessions once they are attending school full-time.
