Sophie, 8

I love OSCARS because I get to play with my friends and do interesting things.

Today, we made characters out of ice lolly sticks and decorated them. I really enjoyed acting out a song and dancing to the pirate theme. 

Our facilities

Set in the grounds of Frampton Cotterell C of E School, OSCARS offers plenty of green space for the children to explore when the weather is fine. Indoors, our 72m2 building houses plenty of room to enjoy games, arts and crafts or other educational activities. 

We invite you to book a site visit with us by clicking here.

Facilities

OSCARS is extremely fortunate to be situated within the lovely grounds of Frampton Cotterell C of E Primary. Our children have access to climbing areas, a mud kitchen, playgrounds and fields. 

On rainy days, or just for those who prefer to play indoors, children can keep busy with Lego, Knex, Jovo, jigsaws, board games and card games or have fun with role play and dressing up. There is a television and DVDs as well as plenty of books to read, or the children might even want to turn on a games console... 

For our older OSCARS children, we have The Hang Out! Catering to Years 4, 5 and 6, it features new equipment and features specially requested by this age group. 

Arty children will enjoy drawing and colouring while the craft box offers up hours of creative enjoyment. Ahead of special occasions or festivals, our staff will encourage the children to create according to themes.

New starters

We are very excited to be welcoming a new batch of Reception children in September 2022. All our staff are looking forward to meeting the newcomers. Parents will shortly receive a handbook for further information on OSCARS. 

Even more exciting, is that for the first time, this year we are offering wrap around care for Reception children during the initial settling in weeks. Any FCCE Reception child may attend (subject to availability), even those  who will not regularly attend OSCARS during term time. Please contact us on info@oscarschildcare.org.uk to find out more or visit our stand during the information evening for Reception 2022 parents/carers on the 28th June. 

Christmas Jumper Jumble

Have your children grown out of their Christmas jumpers?

Of course they have!

 

Don’t let them go to waste.

Donate your outgrown Christmas jumpers to Oscars and then come to our jumble sale to find (nearly) new ones. All proceeds go to Oscars.

Previously loved jumpers can be handed in at Oscars. Other Christmas themed clothing are also welcome!

Although we have set activities on each day, we will always have the ‘usual’ activities on offer as well: football, colouring, outdoor play, construction etc. We will always make sure there is something that the children want to do!

COVID POLICY: If your child is showing any symptoms, please do NOT send them to club. We would encourage the use of lateral flow tests regularly and getting a PCR test should there be any symptoms. We will need to send your child home if we suspect covid symptoms. We ask that if your child receives a positive test that you let us know ASAP. We will then support in identifying those who are close contacts. We do have a few vulnerable children attending OSCARS so this is really important. All staff will continue to do lateral flow tests twice a week.  

Please let us know if you have any additional questions and we will gladly try to answer them. 

 

Covid Update

In light of rising cases of Coronavirus both in schools and in England as a whole, OSCARS will be following the same guidance as FCCE as a school. This being, if anyone in your household tests positive, or has symptoms, you should keep your child at home and not send them in to OSCARS. This applies to both our after school care and the October Playscheme. Children displaying symptoms will be sent home and asked to take a PCR. 

Numbers are still low for the playscheme so there will be no bubbles, for now, although this will be constantly reviewed. Children are advised to bring in jackets and warm clothing as we will remain outside as much as possible. Please keep us informed in regards to your child's attendance or non-attendance on info@oscarschildcare.org.uk

Covid Update

OSCARS continues to follow the same guidance as FCCE as a school. This being, whilst the legal requirement around isolation has changed the guidance from Public Health England around self-isolation remains in place. Children who are unwell should not attend OSCARS or play scheme and should remain at home until their acute symptoms resolve. 

We are not operating bubbles but this is constantly reviewed. Please ensure your children have jackets and warm clothing as we remain outside as much as possible. Please keep us informed in regards to your child's attendance or non-attendance on info@oscarschildcare.org.uk
