Zac’s Club Escrick
Our Breakfast & After School Club at Escrick was our very first Young Discoverers setting, and opened on 4th November 2008 with just 4 children, 2 of whom were the Director’s own children. It has been fabulous to see the Club grow from there to having around 34 children on their busiest session each week.
Our relationship with the school has also developed over this time, and we are extremely proud to be working in partnership to ensure that the facility meets the needs of parents, teachers, governors, and most importantly the children themselves.
Andrew Newton is Manager at the Club, and has undertaken this role since 2011. He holds a Level 3 Diploma from the Children and Young People’s Workforce, which he undertook whilst working for Young Discoverers at our Nursery. The latest Ofsted report describes him as “an excellent role model and key person”, and that “he leads the staff team well, creating a warm and welcoming environment”.
Andrew works with Jane Young, Kim Wood, and Paige Moore as his team of Playworkers. Jane has been at the Club since 2010, gained her level 3 Childcare qualification whilst working for Young Discoverers, and has developed a strong relationship with the children. Kim works in the Club alongside her role as a Teaching Assistant for a school in York, and has great ideas for play and learning. She is also qualified in Childcare, and holds a level 3 Teaching Assistant qualification. Paige is our newest recruit and is currently studying for her Early Years Educator qualification whilst also working at our Cliffe Before and After School Club, and the Nursery.
All staff hold current Paediatric First Aid Certificates, and Food Safety Certificates, and also undertake other regular trainings relevant to the role including the Safeguarding of Children.
The setting operates 7.30am -9.00am each morning and 3.15pm -6.15pm each afternoon during term time.
