Tiddlywinks Out Of School Club (TOOSC)
For many families, the most demanding childcare to arrange are when schools are closed and parents still have to work. Our After School and Holiday clubs provide an essential service to help parents and families during these times.
We work in partnership with 4 local schools; E-Act Blackley Academy, St Clare’s R.C Primary School Higher Blackley, St Peter’s Primary School Alkrington and Ravensbury Primary School enabling parents/carers to carry on working, safe in the knowledge that their children are well cared for and give children a great opportunity to explore, learn and have fun in a supportive, relaxed and happy environment.
We support each child and their family whilst providing stimulating, hands on experiences; which will assist them in their future life skills. Activities available for the children to access include arts and crafts, baking, den making, fashion design, role play, group games and a variety of trips into the wider community.
All members of staff have been selected with the utmost care and we aim to make their working environment a happy one, where they feel part of a team and thus creating stability for all the children in the Out of School Clubs.
Ofsted standards require 50% of the staff team to be qualified; at Tiddlywinks we thrive to provide a 100% qualified staff team with extensive valuable experience, in addition to possessing NVQ level 3, BTEC and Sport Coach qualifications.
Members of staff become keycarers to a group of children; this named member of staff will support your child’s development and be a key contact during your child’s time at TOOSC.
