Out of hours care is something more and more primary schools are outsourcing. Tutortoo provides high quality on-site after-school and holiday clubs, tailored to the requirements of each school. By working directly with parents, we provide a stress-free solution for schools, with clubs which are fully staffed and managed by the experienced Tutortoo team.
Tutortoo daily after-school clubs extend the school day, providing content which both educates and entertains children whilst their parents are at work. Tutortoo after-school clubs are for children aged 5-12 years and last between one and two hours to suit each school.
Engaging clubs centred around three elements:
We bring to life traditional craft activities which parents and grandparents would have done as children, such as making peg dolls, French knitting or creating pom-pom animals. Each activity has a different level of complexity and so can be tailored to a variety of age groups. Through each activity, pupils learn about the history and cultural heritage behind the crafts and some, hopefully, are inspired to start a new hobby.
A variety of physical theatre styles are introduced to children as they are encouraged to improvise, project their voices and work on the best ways to portray different characters. Games and activities are used to stretch imaginations, inspire creativity, increase confidence and promote teamwork, all whilst having lots of fun.
Children use their imaginations and problem-solving skills to discover the best structure for a marble run, whether a bridge made from pasta or paper is the strongest and how a paper aeroplane can be adapted to fly in the furthest straightest line possible. Using everyday objects to build and have fun, we talk to pupils about the maths and science behind their creations and encourage our little engineers of the future.
To keep little minds busy during the school holidays, Tutortoo provides holiday clubs which are both fun and educational. Our half-day, full-day or week-long holiday clubs are for children 5 to 12 years of age, who will enjoy a wide variety of activities, including crafts, drama, junk-box modelling and construction, plus a range of physical activities to keep everyone energised throughout the day.
