Bookings now open!

Nottinghamshire YMCA is thrilled to welcome you back to YMCA Childcare’s before and after school clubs for the new school year! We are now accepting bookings.

Health and Safety

Our team have put a number of positive hygiene measures in place to keep children safe when they attend our clubs. We will be continually reviewing them throughout each term, in line with government guidelines and updates. Our COVID-19 Safety Plan outlines the actions and expectations of YMCA staff, parents and children. Please make sure you familiarise yourself with them before your child attends a session. If there are any updates to these measures, you will receive a notification email or call.

We are excited to be welcoming you back to our YMCA Childcare clubs this September for a new term! There have been some changes to the structure of our clubs in light of government guidance surrounding COVID-19. We have been working extremely hard to ensure that the site will be as safe as possible for your children to return.

We will be ensuring that your children are washing or sanitising their hands regularly. We will have hand sanitiser containers placed around each area and will keep these topped regularly up so that your child’s hands are as clean as possible, reducing any risk of infection.

We understand and appreciate that these are uncertain times, but please be assured that we will continue to work hard to keep your children safe within our settings.

Please do not hesitate to contact us over the phone or by emailing childcare@nottsymca.org if you have any questions and we will do everything that we can to support you. You can also visit our website nottsymca.com for more information.

    Drop Off and Collection Points: 

    Working within the guidelines of the school, no parents will be permitted to enter the setting. All children are to be dropped off and collected at the leisure centre reception. 

    On arrival at the reception, you will need to ring the doorbell and a member of the YMCA staff team will collect your child and bring them to and from the breakfast and afterschool clubs. You must wait in the reception area for the child at collection time.

    Timings:  

    Breakfast club will now run between 07:15 and 09:30 to coincide with the staggered start times within the school. Please do not bring your child any earlier than 07:15 as the staff will preparing the setting to ensure maximum safety measures are in place for pupils. 

    Please ensure that if your child’s lesson time starts at 09:20-09:30 that they are dropped off at our setting 10 minutes before, as we must take them to their designated drop off area.  

    Bubbles:   

    We will be working in partnership with the school and using a bubble system. We will operate with three different bubbles in both breakfast and after school club. These will be as follows;  

    Bubble One: Reception, Years 1 & 2  

    Bubble Two: Years 3 & 4  

    Bubble Three: Years 5 & 6  

    Each bubble will have their own dedicated staff member and location for the duration of each session. Following the procedures of the school, children will not be allowed to mix with other bubbles and staff members will also not move between bubbles. This is to ensure that your children are kept as safe as possible whilst at our Breakfast and After School Clubs.  

    Hand Washing:  

    We will be ensuring that your children are washing or sanitising their hands regularly. We will have hand sanitiser containers placed around each area and will keep these topped regularly up so that your child’s hands are as clean as possible, reducing any risk of infection.
