We have been running the After School Club as our flagship programme since June 2012. Twice a week, dozens of local area children come with their parents for an hour and a half of games, crafts, reading, and healthy snacks. For children needing academic support, we offer homework help and one-on-one tutoring.
For the kids is it's a time to have some fun, play with friends and maybe get a little help with reading or homework. For the parents, it's a nice break between school pick-up and home time, where they can enjoy a cup of tea and natter with old friends, or even make some new ones. And it's not unusual to see parents picking up a brush at the craft table!
