“ Every child deserves the best possible start in life, with support to fulfil their potential ”

Adventurers Club

We are a fun place with friendly qualified staff, where children come to relax, have fun and make new friends while parents have peace of mind at work knowing their children are safe and enjoying themselves.

We cover everything from breakfast club and after school, to inset days and every school holiday including independent school holidays with extended opening hours from 7.30am to 6.30pm. In the afternoon children are collected from school and at the club, have the opportunity to unwind, enjoy a cooked tea with a choice of fun activities inside or outside!

Outdoors we have a big garden including swings, monkey bars, sand play and plenty of room for football, and lots of other games. Including a shady area to relax and chat to friends. Inside there are lots of different toys and games to choose from, including the Nintendo Wii, computer, air hockey and table football, even archery! We also have fun activities planned every day, from colouring & drawing, paper puzzles to cooking, art & craft, reading/listening to stories and of course plenty of toys and other games to keep them entertained!

All this in a homely environment with exciting trips out everywhere in the holidays to Farms, Adventure parks, the Theatre, to Trampolining and Gymnastics including opportunities such as Bush craft and Science for kids!

      Jasmina HaighRegional Manager
    I began my career in childcare in 1991 when I came to England from Serbia to be an au-pair. I thoroughly enjoyed working with children and decided to gain formal childcare qualifications and completed the NNEB Diploma in 1996. Since then I have worked in a variety of settings, mainly in supervisory/ managerial roles and these include crèches, holiday play schemes, day nurseries and children’s centres. I obtained my BA (Hons) Degree in Early Years and Leadership in 2014 and have since then progressed in my career working as a Senior Manager and Area/ Regional manager roles; supporting, advising and coaching managers. I joined Childcare & Learning Group as Regional Manager in August 2018 and am really looking forward to working alongside senior management, managers and their teams. For the Cranbrook group of nurseries, I am the Regional Manager directly responsible for our Adventurers Setting.

        I have worked for Cranbrook for 15 years and as manager for the last 9 years. My career started off by working with babies and now has progressed to caring for primary aged children and young people. The challenge of working with this age group has always been fulfilling with so many exciting opportunities, and the pleasure of watching them change as they grow up, supporting them through their different stages of the transition process. Meeting and getting to know Parents and Carers and of course the children, encouraging and working with everyone, is a great personal reward.

        While pleased to see children who leave us when they reach secondary school age move on to new things it also makes me a little emotional! It becomes even more interesting when the tables are turned and they teach me how to use some of our recent technology! This age group amazes me with their endless energy and enthusiasm for new things, no day is ever the same! It’s this which keeps me going and my brain active, planning things for their continuous development, keeping them entertained and helping them prepare to become our young society of today.

        We know that Cranbrook is only as good as the relationship between our staff and our customers (the big ones and the little ones!) and we plan to continue listening and responding to parents’ needs, quickly and effectively.
