E-Act Academy (Toosc Head Office)
Our Out of School Club in Higher Blackley is based within the Higher Blackley SureStart Children’s Centre as we opened as part of Tiddlywinks Nursery in April 2007 and are registered to take up to 24 children in this setting.
We collect the children from the local school, E-Act Academy which is just up the road, and then walk them back to our setting to later be collected by their parents/carers when the session finishes. The school work in close partnership with us, along with the parents/cares, as we have great relationships with them to support the children in their development.
The team arrive in reasonable time to set up and plan their room with activities for the children at Higher Blackley Children’s before walking up to E-Act Blackley Academy to collect the children for their session. All of the children have to wear our high visibility jackets to walk back to the SureStart centre. The children are paired together and the older children walk with the younger children as everybody is evenly spread between our four members of staff in their work coats.
Myself and my husband are very pleased with the care given to my daughter. She has settled in very well and we have seen a huge difference in her since she has joined Tiddlywinks. She is so much happier coming t nursery now and playing with Emma.
