Blackthorns - Pioneer Childcare

We provide onsite Breakfast and After School Clubs at Blackthorns Community Primary Academy.

Pioneer Club sessions are planned to cater for children of all ages and abilities with the aim of supporting each child in their development through enriching and nurturing activities. We’ll be onsite each day of the school term to take care of all your childcare needs.

Our Blackthorns Pioneer Club will make use of designated spaces within the school, including use of the school hall and access to all the wonderful outdoor areas. Our team include sports coaches, art leaders and childcare professionals

Our activities

We offer children choice and variety across our range of indoor activities including sport, games and arts & crafts. We enjoy additional access to the playgrounds, field & outdoor areas – meaning we have plenty of room to further extend our range of exciting activities.

We are constantly monitoring and supporting the children, to ensure everyone has been well fed with a variety of options available to keep the children engaged and enjoying themselves whilst in our care.
