Mayville High School prides itself on its exceptionally caring ethos and this is an ethos we extend to our Out of School care provision. Comprising of before school (Early-Care), after school (After-Care) and Holiday Club, Mayville offers full-time working parents wrap-around childcare for 50 weeks a year for children in our Early Years, Pre-Prep, Junior and Senior departments.
Our Early-Care offers parents the opportunity to drop-off children from 8am where they will be greeted by familiar staff for a short period of free-play.
Our After-Care provision runs from the end of the children’s school day until 6pm if required. We are fully understanding of the ever changing needs of working parents and therefore offer parents the flexibility to arrange this in advance, or on a nightly basis. During this time the children are encouraged to join in with a number of outdoor free-play activities including ball-games, large construction toys, hoops, stilts and skipping ropes before transferring inside at around 4pm to enjoy a freshly prepared light tea. Tea consists of a healthy, balanced and ever changing selection of sandwiches, wraps, baguettes, crumpets, seasonal fruits, vegetables and the occasional sweet-treat! Thereafter, there is the option to enjoy a selection of indoor play experiences with our range of table-top games and toys alongside more structured creative activities and the opportunity for our older children to complete their homework under the watchful eye of Mayville teaching staff.
Our Holiday Club runs throughout all school holidays (except for 2 weeks over Christmas) and is open from 8am – 6pm every day during these times for children aged 2-11. With a more relaxed, ‘home-from-home’ environment, Holiday Club is designed to cater for the individual needs of the children, with a wide array of age-appropriate outings and activities. During the holiday periods we try wherever possible to get ‘Out and About’ and search high and low for fantastic outings (near and far) that will enrich the children’s time with us. For our Early Years children, there are regular visits to local farms, indoor and outdoor play spaces and movie cinema mornings. For our older children, recent trips have included wall climbing, country parks, places of historical interest and local sporting venues amongst many others. All children are encouraged to take part in art, craft and baking activities and just love our Holiday Club themed parties which take place during October Half-Term, Christmas and Easter. Throughout the year we offer special themed activity weeks, and have recently presented such weeks as, ‘Hallowe’en Week’, ‘Get Active Week’, ‘Drama Week’, ‘Get Cooking Week’, ‘Nature Week’ and ‘Get Creative Week’.
