Friends Together is a governing body led childcare provision offering before and after school care for children aged 3-11 years.

Friends Together staff ensure that all children are provided with a comfortable, happy, safe, fun and stimulating environment to play and develop freely.

  1. Children settle in well and thoroughly enjoy the out of school club.

  2. The children engage well in all the activities and play happily and cooperatively.

  3. Children feel a sense of belonging and develop trusting relationships with the staff.

  4. Individual needs are well met and children are treated fairly.

  5. Children feel at ease in this friendly environment, a place where they can relax or be active according to their moods.

  6. The organisation of the premises and resources allow children to make choices and become independent.
