Our After School Club at YMCA Surbiton is currently closed.
Across our Children, Youth and Family department we are following advice from local commissioners and falling in line with information provided to schools, in particular the guidance for schools, colleges and local authorities on maintaining educational provision, published 19 March 2020 and updated 16 June 2020.
The Ofsted-registered After School Club at YMCA Surbiton collects children from two local schools Maple Infants and St Andrew’s & St Mark’s – and caters for 4 to 11 year olds. Convenient for Surbiton station and on several bus routes, it is a popular choice for busy working parents who commute into London.
Activities are planned within the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS) and include a mix of arts & crafts, imaginary play, cooking, board games and dance. In good weather, we go to the local park for physical play and sports such as football and hockey.
Fresh fruit is available all afternoon and at 4.30 pm we serve a healthy snack in the YMCA cafe. All possible care is taken to ensure your child’s dietary requirements are met.
Our Playworkers are well-qualified, friendly and as most have been with YMCA for many years, there is continuity of care.
“The communication between staff and parents is very good and I feel confident that my children are welcomed into the club every afternoon; you can tell by the atmosphere that the staff love being there too.” – Kim (Parent)
