Shine Out of School Clubs By Shine Out of School Clubs

Shine is an inclusive out of school club offering a safe and enriching environment and enabling parents to work knowing their children are having fun, enjoying a snack, learning and making friends.

This project was funded on 31 Mar 2023!

Our passion is to provide high quality after-school care for children aged between 3 and 10 from a range of Evesham schools, while parents/carers have to work or study. We provide both formal and informal opportunities for all those who attend to enable them to SHINE in their individual ways. As an inclusive provision we cater for all children including those with autism, refugees and most recently a wheelchair user who has never been able to access such provision before. We currently operate a 'walking bus' to collect our children from their various schools but would like a minibus to enable us to collect more children, from more schools, more efficiently. As our numbers are now increasing, we may have up to 12 children to collect from a school. This makes the 'walking bus' an unpleasant and more dangerous activity in our crowded footpaths,

What we'll deliver:

  • Purchase a wheelchair accessible minibus
  • Train three staff to drive it confidently
  • Enable more parents/carers to work or study without childcare concerns
  • Provide access for more children from more schools

Why it's a great idea:

In these challenging times parents/carers are having to work longer hours and need to be confident about the care their children receive after school. More people will be able to enter paid employment, or extend their hours if we can have a wider reach across schools. The children have wonderful opportunities to develop or learn new skills in a stimulating environment with good indoor and outdoor spaces. We also provide snacks as children always work up an appetite at school!

Steps to get it done:

  • Book minibus driver training courses
  • Purchase minibus
  • Purchase appropriate stickers to indicate Shine and acknowledge major supporters, plus appropriate warning stickers.

A minibus will enable us to offer more rewarding activities to children attending our HAF clubs eg trip to farm parks or the seaside,
