Welcome to Candles (Care and Learning at School)
Candles is the out-of-hours care facility at Heighington CE Primary School.
We provide before and after school care for children from 4-14 and are available every morning between 7:30am and 8:50am and every afternoon between 3:15pm and 6:00pm, Monday to Friday. Please note that – during the current Covid-19 pandemic – opening times have been reduced to allow for enhanced cleaning. Until further notice, Candles is available every morning between 7:30am and 8:50am and every afternoon between 3:15pm and 5:00pm.
Candles is led by Ms Ida Austin (Manager).
Candles aims to provide:
- - A safe and secure environment
- - A pleasant and enjoyable experience that is as demanding upon the children as they wish
- - Opportunities to experience a wide variety of creative and physical activities beyond the normal school day
- - Time and space for children to relax and enjoy a quiet time if they so choose
- - A healthy breakfast and afternoon snack
Each child in our care under the age of 5 has a nominated Key Worker who is responsible for monitoring their learning and development whilst at Candles. The Key Workers liaise closely with Reception Class staff in school. The children each have a ‘Special Book’ which is filled with photos and examples of the activities that they have been participating in at Candles. Parents are encouraged to regularly share this book.
