Wakoos After School Clubs are based across two sites in Billingshurst. Sharks at Wakoos Centre4Children (4-7 years) and Crocodiles at the Women's Hall (7 - 11 years). Our friendly and experienced staff team provide a range of fun and exciting activities throughout the sessions which focus on building the children's confidence, developing their skills and expanding their interests. Each session is tailored to suit the children's individual needs, interests and abilities, and the children have lots of opportunities to input into the weekly planning. We also work with schools to develop opportunities for children to complete their homework at the clubs, with the help of staff.
Wakoos After School Clubs follow the Playwork Principles to create positive and stimulating environments for children to play in.
