Based in Swanley, Kent
Horizon Primary Academy
Quality childcare provider in Sidcup, offering breakfast club from 7:30am and an after school club from 3:20 to 6:15pm. We serve a buffet style tea at 4:30, ensuring the children are encouraged with healthy eating habits. Our main focus at Footscray is that the children are having a good time and enjoying themselves.
Learning Through Purposeful Play
Although structured activities are offered, our policy is to encourage children to develop and join in with their own ideas using their physical, mental, and social skills. Our activities are planned and often used to enhance learning of a particular topic we are covering. Reading time and completion of homework is actively encouraged daily unless parents have stipulated for their child to complete this at home. Incentives are available to all children for participating in homework time to encourage them to manage their own learning. We work hard to promote an inclusive atmosphere in our centre where all children can engage in any activity offered and contribute to our planning. Examples of typical daily activities are:
Competitions & Prizes
Arts & Crafts
Malleable materials ( Dough, clay, etc)
I have over 16 year’s experience working with children, from various backgrounds, with varying needs, ageing from 2 to 11 years old. With a positive and enthusiastic mentality, I aim at making a difference with those I come in contact with. Communication is key in every team therefore it is important to me to ensure parents are confident in knowing their children are, and feel safe, comfortable and in good hands.
It is highly important to be sensitive and mindful of the needs of every child in my setting, therefore I make it a priority to spend adequate and efficient time with each child to draw the best out of them to help support wherever we can. Our supporting team are always approachable for any concerns.
