All About Us

The D2D club at St. Joseph’s provides both before and after school care to children from St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Primary School aged four to eleven years, in a friendly, relaxed, fun, caring and informal environment.

The club provides a balanced structure of activities and play experiences that follow the Play-work Principles and the Prime Areas of learning within the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework, including:

Policies & Procedures

Staff

The D2D club is managed and run by qualified staff holding suitable qualifications e.g. Early Years Degree, Level 3, Food Hygiene and Paediatric First Aid. All staff are subject to an enhanced CRB check. Any students will also be CRB checked and closely supervised.

Open Door Policy

We value our parents/carers and any comments or suggestions they might have. (Positive or otherwise!) Please feel free to speak to the Manager or a member of staff or alternatively complete our suggestion form.

Behaviour

We encourage good behaviour by using positive language and by modelling good behaviour. If we feel that any behaviour is inappropriate we will discuss and if necessary a discussion with the parent /carer[s] may take place.
