All Sparks Play and Care’s clubs are ‘child-centred’, which means that we consider the play needs of the children first and foremost. This is because we believe that good play opportunities can stimulate increased confidence and self-esteem in young people and aid their growth and development. To support this process we offer the children at our clubs a stimulating environment with a variety of activities that they can use in their play to learn new skills. We also provide Staff who treat young people with respect and value their individuality and diversity, as well as taking responsibility for their care and safety. Our members are each assigned to their “Key worker” playworker, who is there to support their introduction to and ongoing enjoyment of the clubs that we run. In addition, we also provide light, nutritious meals that give the children the energy to enjoy it all! We can provide for all specific dietary requirements.

We also know that parents have needs too, so our clubs are there to give you the extra time that you want with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your child is being well looked after - all our regular staff are trained in playwork and have current CRB certificates and the clubs are OFSTED registered as well.

Sparks is also proud to be an equal opportunities setting with a commitment to anti-bias and anti-discriminatory practice. We pride ourselves in the steps we take for all children to be included in all activities, having numerous members of staff with specific inclusion training. We also have a wide variety of sensory play equipment as well as lots of messy play opportunities for all the children to enjoy. If a child has specific needs, we will do everything we can to not let this get in the way of their chosen play opportunities as it is essential that every child has the right to play.
