The Hive

Our After and Pre-School care facility, aptly named The Hive by the children themselves, is as it sounds, a happy, buzzy place where children can relax in a family atmosphere, have fun and play with friends of all ages.

After school children in the club will have fun exploring, creating and socialising, and if they have homework, there is an area where they can focus on study; iPads will be made available to help them with their studies.

Each term the Hive has a themed activity in which children can participate. General activities will also include board games, Lego, reading, peg boards, Hama beads, giant Connect4, cooking, table football, art and silly photos on the iPads, arts, crafts and quizzes. Projects this year have included pottery, weaving, patchwork snakes, footprint art, pompoms and food animals. Children also go and play outside. Children prepare, eat and clear up their own evening supper. We do not watch TV in the Hive
