Welcome to our Breakfast Club!

Parents' Testaments

I would like to express my gratitude for the Breakfast Club that you provide ...

A warm welcome is always on offer when you arrive at Nook Lane Breakfast Club. My daughter loves Mrs Kennedy and Mrs Cooper ... especially their toast-making skills which are the best (apparently I can never make it like them!!) There is always a lovely atmosphere and the kiddies all seem to mix well and the conversation always seems to be flowing. All pupils enjoy a great breakfast followed by chill-out and the chance to play together ... a great start to the school day. I am confident that my daughter is well cared for by two lovely members of staff and would recommend the Breakfast Club to other parents ... thank you for everything Mrs K and Mrs C.

Our two children have started at Nook Lane Breakfast Club this year and we are delighted by the service which is provided. They look forward to meeting friends before school and the staff are always very kind and welcoming. I often feel redundant as they are disappointed when it's my turn to bring them to school rather than attending breakfast club and I don't seem to be able to manage to make toast like Mrs Cooper! Our children have also attended after school club once and again we were thoroughly impressed with the individual care and attention given. The activities on offer seemed very varied and engaging. Both children cannot wait for us to work late so that can attend again.

Breakfast Club is a fun and safe environment for our girls where they get to have breakfast with their friends and time to play after. There is plenty to keep them engaged after breakfast with the resources available in school. One of the big advantages for us is that they are already settled into the school day before it begins. The Breakfast Club team are all really friendly and take time to get to know the girls which puts them, and us, at ease.
