Inclusive After School Club

Starts back on Tuesday 20th April 2021

Tuesday to Fridays

Covid 19 Update

Whippersnappers are currently running our after school sessions in bubbles of 5 children. This means that our club is currently only open for specialist children who have been referred to Whippersnappers through Lambeth CWDT. We will notify parents and carers when we are in a position to return to our previous inclusive after school model

Our inclusive After-School Club is a fun and safe space for children to be creative, express themselves, socialise and unwind after a busy day at school.

We pride ourselves in being a child led organisation and every day we offer a variety of activities for your child to choose from.

We are OFSTED registered and all staff and volunteers are DBS checked.

Activities on offer vary from day-to-day. Every day (weather permitting) we include outdoor play for the children to get some fresh air and a run around. We have a wide range of outdoor equipment including sand and water play, a trampoline, parachutes, balls, stilts, diablos, spinning plates, poi and hula-hoops.

Activities on offer across different sites include:

  • outdoor camp
  • arts and crafts,
  • cooking,
  • garden and sensory play,
  • circus skills,
  • trips out,
  • football and outdoor sports,
  • drumming, drama, disco, fancy dress,
  • cinema or wii on special occasions,
  • table football,
  • table tennis,
  • full PA and microphone for karaoke,
  • Variety of table top games,
