Ofsted Report 2017
“My children are always happy to go to the ASC, to such an extent that both want to avoid scheduling tea dates with their friends when they are due to be at the ASC.
Cathy and her team have made them feel welcomed and relaxed when they are there, and they go the extra mile to make sure the kids are happy and have been so accommodating with regards to my eldest being able to attend Forest Club and then join the ASC afterwards, and also with getting my youngest’s football gear when he goes off to Soccer club.
This type of thing is a big deal for any working parent. Last year when the kids were at an off-site ASC they couldn’t do any school clubs as there was no means for them to then get to or from the off-site ASC, which caused a lot of upset and disappointment. Cathy’s approach has certainly made my working life that bit easier for which I am really grateful.” – A working mum
An example of our activities – Week Commencing 13th March 2017:
The activities that have been taking place this week are: St Patrick’s & Mothers’ Day.
Monday – At Berkhamsted Football Club with a trip to the park for outdoor fun and games.
Tuesday – Table printing to make Mothers’ Day cards. The children were able to select their own colours to print patterns including circles, squiggles and zig-zags, which were then constructed into cards for Mothers’ Day.
Wednesday – Lucky clover. The children were able to make a lucky 4 leaf clover for St Patrick’s Day with green tissue paper and glue. They also made some more Mothers’ Day cards (as per Tuesday) and had stretching exercise time on the mats.
Thursday – Slime Time. The children were given the chance to use their imagination with green slime sensory play, as well as continuing to make their Mothers’ Day cards.
Friday – Now we’re cooking. The children made salt dough shamrocks and decorated them using sequins and shiny objects.
