Wylye Coyotes offers high quality, OFSTED registered childcare at Wylye Valley School for children aged 3 - 12. We were rated as “Good” in our last OFSTED inspection in October 2018. Wylye Coyotes is an inclusive club and we are committed to offering equal opportunities to all children. We safeguard and promote the welfare of the children in our care. We are a social enterprise, and all our profits are re-invested into resources to enrich our setting.
We offer the flexibility for children to attend whenever it suits you – you can book by the half hour, so that you only pay for the childcare that you need. We charge £4.50 per hour for the first child, and £3.50 per hour for additional children from the same family.
The Afterschool Club is open from 3pm – 6pm Monday to Thursday. A uniformed member of our staff collects Wylye Valley children from the school hall. We are set in our own lovely, secure grounds adjacent to the school. When children come over to us after working hard all day they enjoy a healthy snack and a drink, followed by carefree play with friends from several local schools. We try to get outdoors as much as possible – making potions in the mud kitchen, climbing the trees and playing on the slide and in the sandpit. We have a kitchen garden where we grow flowers, fruit and vegetables (the children love picking strawberries and raspberries in the summer), and a woodland play area with our own zip wire. We have tropical fish, guinea pigs and a tortoise which the children help to look after. We serve a freshly cooked two course meal at 5pm, at an additional cost of £2 per child.
The Breakfast Club is open every school day from 8-9am. We serve breakfast at an additional cost of 50p per child.
The Holiday Club is open in most school holidays on Monday to Friday from 8am–6pm.
We like to take part in all sorts of competitions and challenges to extend the children’s range of experience of the world – previously we have represented Miracle Gro’ers at the Chelsea Flower Show (we have Gold medals!), and won prizes at RHS Wisley for our show gardens. We have a Gold Award in the Woodland Trust's Green Tree Schools scheme. In the holidays we organize trips to a wide range of activities from farms to country parks.
Coyote Cubs Toddler Group is open every Wednesday morning during term time from 9–11am. We welcome all parents and carers with children aged 0–4.
The Cafe in the Trees on Mondays in term time is an affordable community cafe where families come first. We are open from 12 noon til 3pm, offering a range of toddler-friendly meals and snacks (made to order to suit the pickiest of eaters) and themed craft activities.
On Friday mornings everyone is welcome to come over after school drop off for our Fareshare Friday Coffee Club, where you can enjoy a hot drink and a pastry and help us to save food going into landfill. A selection of bakery products, fruit and vegetables are available from our Community Larder.
