“At After School Club my son (who has dyslexia) has formed several important friendships. His self-esteem has been boosted due to the caring attention of the staff who have fostered a safe environment where he feels confident. The staff at After School Club have been extremely supportive and have taken the time to work with my son, to get to know him and to build his confidence. This year I have seen a marked difference in my son; he is much more confident and happy.”

“Staff create a very welcoming, attractive and child friendly environment that helps to support children’s safety and growing independence.”

“Children develop warm and caring attachments with staff and each other. The Manager and staff support children’s emotional well-being effectively. They praise children and build on their developing self-esteem.”

“We as a family have been using Tarner Club since my daughter was in reception.  That’s seven years we have had the privilege of going to Tarner, not just for after school club but holidays too. Our gratitude is huge.”
Gemma, Parent

“Both really enjoyed coming back and neither wanted to leave. My children have always been warmly welcomed at the play scheme and enjoy your imaginative, child-centred, creative environment. The freedom to play outside and engage in such a variety of activities has been a really positive experience for both the kids.”
Nicky, Parent

“The Manager and staff are friendly and welcoming and have a good rapport with both parents and children that attend. Children are happy in the stimulating environment.”

“Children learn skills that help them prepare for the future. For example, they learn to be independent and begin to manage tasks on their own.”

“There is a wonderful array of resources that supports children’s learning well.”

“My daughter never minded going to Tarner, even preferred sometimes to be there than to be home, especially for holidays. This certainly put my mind at rest and enabled me to work with less stress and worry knowing she was happy. Tarner was able to handle her in a fun atmosphere but had firm boundaries and good role models. We thank you so much and miss it now.”
