Bishopthorpe Out of School Club
Bishopthorpe OOSC is a 50 place Out of School and Holiday Club based at the Old School in the heart of beautiful Bishopthorpe, on the southern outskirts of York. The club has been central to the community for decades, being refurbished and opening as part of the Little Green Rascals family in 2017. At Bishopthorpe OOSC, we warmly welcome school aged children up to 14 years old, including preschoolers aged 3.5 who will be starting school the following September.
We share our home with Bishopthorpe nursery, but have our own dedicated space called the Green Room; a large hall with free flow into a lovely, spacious garden. Our room includes lots of activities to encourage free play for all ages - games, books, dolls house, small world, dark den, craft area and so much more. Outside we have our fantastic bespoke hobbit hill, swings, a climbing frame, and a large selection of bikes and sports equipment. There really is something for everyone - each day we offer planned activities and actively encourage the children to help us plan these.
The club is managed by Yvonne Pulvenis, supported by a team of wonderful staff who care deeply for the children we look after. The team have a huge combined experience in childcare, and are all qualified at Level 3 or above, or are working towards this.
During term time, we run our breakfast and after school clubs, dropping off and collecting children who attend Bishopthorpe Infant School and Archbishop of York Junior School.
Breakfast Club is from 7:30am, at a cost of £5 per child. Children are provided with a yummy breakfast of organic cereals, toast, spreads and fruit, with opportunities to relax, get their brains whirring and do some last minute school preparation! Having had a fantastic start to the day, we head off to school in time for any clubs or activities.
After School Club is from school collection until 6pm, although a later collection of 6:30pm can be arranged in advance. Sessions are £12 per child, £10 for siblings. Children are collected from school or their after school activity, and head back to club for a fabulous evening of play, socialising and chill time! A yummy homemade, 2-course organic tea is provided by our amazing on-site chef.
We run to York Council term dates and offer care for children from any school within the area at each of the school holidays, closing only for a week at Christmas. Holiday Club is always a really exciting time, and the children love to help us plan some fabulous activities! In addition to these activities, we take the children on various outings (the cinema, the beach, Beetle Bank Farm and the Railway Museum are some of the planned trips we have recently been on) and also bring exciting things to us, including large inflatables and creepy crawlies! We also make use of our local amenities including excellent village park, library and school playing fields.
We offer full day holiday club sessions from 8am - 6pm at a cost £30 (£28 for siblings) with the options for a half day at £20 (£18 for siblings). These sessions are 8am - 1pm, or 1pm - 6pm. Children are asked to bring their own nut free packed lunch, which allows us to be out and about where possible.
