After School Care Provision (Notice from JAYBEES)

Following the sad closure of Small n Tall in Moffat we are currently looking into the possibility of Jaybees providing After School Care within Moffat Academy. Last week we attended a meeting with representatives from Moffat Academy, the local Education Department and the Care Commission which proved to be very positive.

To help us gain an understanding of your childcare requirements it would be very much appreciated if you could please take a few minutes to complete our online survey using the following link:- (below) This information will help us make sure that the service we offer in Moffat meets everyone’s needs.

Unfortunately, there is a bit of paperwork that will need to be processed before we can move forward and it looks like we would be unable to offer any After School Care in Moffat before the February Half Term School Holiday.

Should you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us at:

Stingers After School Care

After School: It would be our proposal that all children are met by staff in the school dining hall at the end of the day. They will register with staff and have a snack/drink which will be provided by Jaybees.

Once the children have all had snack we would then plan to move to our allocated area within the school (meeting room and an area within the nursery room). The children will also have access to the garden area outside the nursery to run off some steam.

Times: 3.00pm-6.00pm

Cost: £4.00 hour including snack (please note we have a minimum charge of £4.00)

Collection: Parents will be able to collect their children from the nursery door, this will ensure that we are not disturbing the school office staff.

School Clubs: We are more than happy to drop off and collect children from any school clubs within the school.

At the moment the school run a breakfast club from 8.30-9.00am so we are a little unsure if there will be a need for us to provide a Before School Club. Hopefully the information we receive from our survey will help us to gauge if this is something that is needed in Moffat.
