At Sophia Mundi we offer a balanced after school care programme based on the principles of Steiner education that is stimulating, interesting and exciting. It allows opportunities for children to play, explore and develop new skills and is appropriate to the developmental and leisure needs of all children
Setting and Activities
The service is based within the school at St Mary’s campus at the convent site and children are provided with afternoon tea around a large formal table setting to encourage a ‘family feel’, to tell stories and relate their day. The snacks provided are nutritious, wholesome and organic or biodynamic wherever possible. We do not utilize television or computer games but encourage social and creative outlets for the children. Indoor activities include drawing and painting, reading and games. Outdoor activities include sand play, ball games, and other sport and group activities. There is provision for the children to rest, complete schoolwork or practice their music together or individually.
After school care is only available during School Terms. Aftercare operates between 3 – 6pm every Monday – Thursday (excluding public holidays & pupil free days) and is primarily for primary school children aged 5-12 years. Friday Aftercare is available, depending on demand.
