Our extensive Wraparound Care service is perfect for busy mums, dads and carers, who are juggling numerous work, family or personal commitments.
As with our nursery services we provide a loving, supportive and home-from-home environment where each child is treated as an individual.
Children join us from primary school age through to about 12-years-old and are sometimes former Mini VIPs themselves – but of course they don’t have to be.
Our Breakfast Club runs from 7.30 am and includes us taking your child safely to school, and at our After-School Club we collect and look after them once school finishes, until your return.
Winchcombe Abbey Primary School: We will walk them to their classroom in the morning, and collect them from their designated area at the end of the school day.
Gretton Primary School: We will take and collect them using our Mini VIPs minibus, again seeing them safely in and out of class.
Isbourne Valley: We can collect your child from the bus stop outside Winchcombe Library at the end of the school day. We’re sorry but currently we’re unable to take your child to school
We know that at 7.30 am some children may still have their ‘sleepy heads’ on. We wake them up gently and they breakfast on cereals, toast, fruit and a choice of drinks. Occasionally crumpets, waffles or sausages rolls are added to the menu as part of our ‘try something different’ approach. Before leaving for school the children spend time in our Activity Rooms.
Once safely collected from school and back at Mini VIPs, children enjoy a home-cooked meal. We support the children to serve themselves, choosing a varied and plentiful amount of food. They are then free to spend time in our Activity Rooms.
We’ve two Activity Rooms, The Den and The Nook, as well as our popular outdoor play areas and our sensory garden. Weather permitting, we also visit local play parks and have a weekly games session in the nearby Sports Hall.
The Den: This ‘hands-on’ room encourages children to use their imaginations and fine tune their motor skills. They can play alongside their peers with Lego, board games, puzzles and a Nintendo DS (for which we limit a child’s time). Some afternoons a game of pool is also an option.
The Nook: This is our ‘chill out’ room with a reading corner, tables for artwork, writing, or homework. Role-play games using our dressing-up box are a favourite, and a television with DVD player is perfect for children preferring some quiet time.
