The CEO’s message
I believe that all of us at Moonlight Family and you parents looking at this website share the same values and believe that every child is unique and has potential but in order to unlock and develop that potential they need opportunities and support. We understand running a home, raising a family, getting children to school, working part-time or full time or not working because of lack of support or lack of opportunity are all stressful situations which can impact on your children and their performance at school. With Moonlight Family Philosophy can help you and your child to achieve that goal. How can we do that?
We are not just an after school club to “baby sit” your child but we are an educational consultants who provide a range of activities that will enhance your child’s learning, health and well-being. We provide a positive environment that promotes positive thinking and wellbeing. Our aim is to assist in the development of emotional intelligence, health and happiness of every child in our care. We understand that when children are happy they are able to develop great self- confidence and that helps them to achieve their full potential.
Our curriculum is tailored to individual ability. Emotional intelligence is paramount in our curriculum alongside academic support such as home-work, English Maths and Science. In addition we also offer extra activities such as time management, organisational skills, sports (swimming, football, dance, as well difference outdoor games) cooking activities and sewing. Career development is one of the core subjects which will help children to find their passion and what they would like to do in future.
Food is one of the most important elements in our lives. Early nutrition is significant in children’s lives. Establishing and encouraging healthy eating can influence lifelong habits and attitudes towards food. Children will have chance to have fine dining style breakfast, snack, hot dinner and mouth-watering desserts. Our breakfast will consist of pancakes, muffins, eggs, toasts, and savoury-muffins, variety of fruit, smoothies, porridge, homemade bread and fresh juices. Our dinner will consist of roast dinners, curry meals, rice dishes, vegetarian and vegan dishes, shepherd’s pie and stews as well as fresh fish meals including fish pie and pan fried fish with vegetables.
In summary our message to you is twofold Our main objective is to give parents a support network that will enable them to reduce their heavy schedule, by not having to prepare breakfast or think about cooking the evening meal and helping their children with home-work after a long working day. Parents can have dinner with us if they wish and there will be a menu to choose from.
Our second objective is to give support to children with their homework and to assist in their general learning. Younger children will be helped to learn through play using the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum at the forefront and older children will more formally be helped with their key skills in English, Maths and Science.
