About the Club

Southfields Explorers Club has been established for many years having previously been named the Time to Play Club and renamed by the school 6 years ago. 

The Explorers Club is based within Southfields Primary School contact telephone number - 01733 562873 or telephone Explorers direct on 01733 562873 extension 216 (during Club opening times as shown above). The Club is overseen by the Head Teacher and Governing Body of Southfields Primary School.  The Manager of the club is Mrs S Johnson and she leads the day to day running of the club. 

Southfields Explorers Club only collects children from the Southfields Primary School. We aim to provide affordable care for parents who need this service.

Southfields Explorers Club provides children with a wide range of play opportunities which meet the needs of all children in a safe, fun and caring environment. All children are given the opportunity to play outdoors; unless weather or health and safety issues prevent this. There is also a separate sports hall available. The children will always be encouraged to participate in fun team and physical activities. Each afternoon children begin homework tasks set by the school, such as their diary entries or independent reading or to read with staff or listen to stories.

The Club offers various activities on rotation which may include:

  • Creative activities: includes adult lead arts and crafts, painting and drawing.
  • Construction play: includes various building materials such as Lego and K-NEX.
  • Quiet activities: includes reading, writing, building jigsaws, watching TV or a DVD.
  • Physical activities: includes bowling, dancing, rounder’s, cricket and team games.
  • Role Play: includes play food / kitchen, play shops, dolls and prams.
  • Small World Play: includes play equipment, train tracks and a variety of cars.
  • Board and Floor Games: includes Connect Four, Snakes and Ladders and Ludo.

We value visits, visitors and fun events such as parties, disco, bouncy castle, visits from sight dogs, frog life, sports coaches and other inspirational speakers and visitors. Details will be timetabled into the Club planner.
