We aim to continue education through play for all pupils, while creating a safe, supportive, fun and happy environment.
Our term-time clubs are set in the familiar surroundings of your child’s school and playground which are invaluable settings for their continued personal development.
Our clubs are delievered based on the playwork principles which recognise that play is a biological need and is essential for healthy development and as playworkers we get to know your children and support them in creating a space where they can play well.
We try to anticipate their needs and provide the opportunities for them to extend their play, perhaps in ways they would not be able to do elsewhere.
As playworkers we regard play as something which is freely chosen, accepting that children are the experts on play and as much as possible we allow them to follow their own instincts and develop their ideas in their own way and for their own reasons.
We offer a broad range of indoor & outdoor activities, ensuring that the children are stimulated at all times. Fun is always on the timetable!
In our term-time and holiday clubs we always have pre-prepared activities including: Arts & crafts, Baking/cooking, Group & individual sports, both inside and outside. The children also have free access to a wide range of traditional toys and games as well as supervised tech time!
The children take an active role of the running of the club. Self confidence, good social skills and manners will always be encouraged!
We work together with the children to promote independenece and to build self-esteem. The older children often take great pride in helping the younger ones and we consider each of our clubs as an extended family.
A healthy breakfast at our morning clubs and snacks at our after school and holiday clubs are always given with all dietary requirements catered for. The children are encouraged to help with making these meals, setting places and clearing away, helping each other.

"Words not enough to explain our experience at the Beehive Club in Nine Mile Ride Primary, but top of mind is the very friendly staff, well organised handling of booking & creative activities. Finally what’s so special is that everyone goes out of their way to make your child comfortable and happy. Many thanks Kerry and team for being outstanding in every possible way."
"My Daughter absolutely LOVES being part of the Beehive family at Crown Wood. The team are brilliant.... they take time to get to know each child and they have been truly wonderful during COVID and supported critical workers by providing wrap around care! My daughter thinks the entertainment is brilliant and the food is delicious! Would recommend this 5 star club to anyone!!"
