OUR OUT OF SCHOOL CLUB
What we do
LPF Kiddies Club runs activities during most school holidays providing low costing enrichment programs in safe and nurturing environments where children from the local community can come together to develop their learning skills, build strong friendships and create lasting memories that they will cherish for a life time. We work to enable children to achieve their full potential by improving their levels of aspiration and progression throughout the primary stages of their education. LPF Kiddies Club delivers sessions where the parents are brought into the learning environment and are encouraged and supported as they become an integral part of their child's learning experiences. We combine education and learning with fun and engaging experiences to help the children develop emotionally, physically, intellectually, creatively and socially.
We always emphasise on MAKING LEARNING MEANINGFUL AND FUN.
We also work to strengthen family units and support positive family environments
We understand that children raised in strong and stable home environments are more likely to achieve a positive future and a greater sense of well-being and so we work with the family unit as a whole to:
Foster positive home learning environments
Encourage and support parents to take a proactive role in their child’s learning
Become more confident in their engagement in their child’s educational journey through mainstream school
LPF Kiddies Club provides opportunities for parents to gain relevant information and ideas on making positive choices about the way they are bringing up their child, we help them to access services and support available to them, we support them in gaining new skills, provide volunteering opportunities and deliver workshops and training sessions that helps to build their confidence and a greater sense of self-esteem.

We have a variety of clubs running during the holidays for you and your child to choose from including:
We run a variety of skills clubs during the school holidays where children can learn new skills such as how to garden and grow a variety of fruit and vegetables, cooking classes where they can learn to cook easy dishes and bake cakes or arts and crafts work shops where they can learn how to make simple art and crafts projects. Our Learn a New Skill Club offer an opportunity to learn something new or develop upon the skills they already have.
Our Cinema club runs once a week during the school holidays and offers a chance to visit a local cinema to watch movies with your family and friends for a fraction of the cost.
We take regular educational visits to Museums, Librarys, Art galleries, Farms and places of interest to give the children an opprtunity to explore the world around them and learn about interesting people, places and things.
At LPF Kiddies Club we like to take every opportunity to celebrate and share the rich and vibarant cultures of all our club members.
We host an annual Black History Month event to celebrate African and Caribbean culture and community spirit. We have traditional African drumming and cultural dances, African storytelling and drama workshops. The children make African masks and beaded jewelry whilst learning about the cultural significance associated with each peice of art. We also take part in a variety of fun games, competitions and raffels.
Arts and Crafts Projects
Our arts and Craft club allows the children to explore a variety of mediums to produce unique and personalised peices. We allow the children to express themselves through their work whilst developing the skills needed to complete each project.
Trips to our local park
We make regular visits to our local parks to explore, investigate, run and play. We also host a Teddy Bears Park trip during the summer allowing the clubs children to bring along their little furry friend to enjoy the fun with us.
At our backyard campout children must prove they are brave enough to first go on a late night walk through the local neighbourhood and green spaces before spending the night sleeping in their tents. We finish the night off by playing group games at the campsite followed by a BBQ, hot chocolate and marshmellows before bed.
During the summer holidays we take a group of the clubs children for a day trip to the beach to build sand castles, do pond dipping, to paddle in the sea and eat ice cream.
