SKITTLES was established at Chandlers Ridge in 1991, and provides quality childcare that is both affordable and flexible for children. Skittles provide pre and after school care for children aged from 4 – 11 years of age in school and from 3 years of age, if attending the school nursery. Children are looked after by trained staff in an environment that is safe, secure, caring, friendly and stimulating.
Skittles is run by Christine Pratt from the School Hall.
Skittles fit in with the needs of parents and carers; children can attend as and when needed. They can come either regularly, occasionally or should an emergency arise and you are unable to take your child to school for the start of the school day or you are unable to collect your child at the end of school.
How the club runs in school
Pre school is open from 7.30am – start of school, between 7.30am – 8.15am breakfast is provided, and after school starts when school ends at 3.30pm and closes at 6.00pm, term time only.
At the start of the day all children are escorted to their teaching areas.
After school a member of staff collects children attending Skittles from nursery, reception and year 1.
