Friends Together offers wraparound care for your child at St. Dominic School between the hours of 7.50am and 6.00pm, through the provision of a Breakfast Club and After School Club. The clubs cater for children in all years, from Reception upwards.

 

What is a Breakfast Club?

A Breakfast Club provides care for children before the start of their school day.

Once registered and booked in, you can leave your child(ren) with us from 7:50 am until the start of the school day. Children will be given the choice of foods from our breakfast menu, including: toast and various spreads; a range of healthy cereals; fresh fruit; and a choice of drinks.

Research into Breakfast Clubs has shown that:

  • They improve attendance at school
  • Children are more relaxed and ready to learn if they have eaten and had an enjoyable start to the day
  • They help to improve concentration and academic performance
  • They provide a healthy meal at the beginning of the day
  • They provide a safe, familiar, warm environment
  • They develop social skills and interaction
  • They provide continuity of care

Benefits for Parents:

  • Reassurance that your children are safe and in school at the correct time
  • Enable the return to full-, part- or shift work or training

What does the After School Club offer?

A club for working parents and those that just need to take a well earned break. Once registered and booked in, you can leave your child(ren) with us from the end of school until either 5pm or 6pm.
