The Team aim to provide a fun and flexible environment for children to play, providing a wide range of experiences and a variety of materials for children to engage with.

The Team work in accordance with the Playwork Principles, which can be found on display in the club, or ask a staff member for a copy.

The children are involved in all aspects of the club from decisions about snacks provided, activities and opportunities set up, outings and toys purchased etc.

We meet all of the requirements of the Health and Social Care Standards, SSSC Codes of Practice and GIRFEC/SHANARRI wellbeing indicators.
