WHO GARVOCK OSC ARE
The Garvock Out of School Club provides an excellent facility for children attending primary Schools in Dunfermline. Based in Garvock Hill, we run our club from the Vine Conference Centre.
WHERE WE ARE
WHERE WE ARE
We are Registered to care for children School aged between 4 and 16 years. Within our multi-purpose hall and Break-out Room at the Vine Conference Centre, we have a vast array of resources that shall occupy children of all age groups within Primary Schooling.
– Touch Primary School
– Commercial Primary School
– St. Margarets Primary School
– Carnegie Primary School.
Other local schools may be considered.
The sports hall is split in half with a large sports curtain to give us two large areas, one for various sports and the other for table top activities and small world adventures. We also have a breakout room where the children can read books in our library corner, watch a movie or dare we mention it… homework! When the weather is good we try to utilise our outdoor area.
We have various modes of transport to aid drop offs and pickups to and from the schools which include a 17 Seater and a 12 seater minibus. As well as “walking bus” to and from Touch School due to the adjacent proximity. In nicer weather, other schools enjoy walking to the club instead of using the minibuses.
We provide an option of cereals, toast and a selection of fruit for breakfast. Our snack menu is made up of suggestions taken from the children’s care plans. During the Holidays the club still provides breakfast & pm snack, however, the children are required to bring a packed lunch from home and a water bottle.
We are open for the majority of school holidays and in-service days, however we are closed at the Christmas break. We have an exciting and varied itinerary which includes trips and outings to many local, and some further afield, such as local parks, soft play areas, cinema, Edinburgh museum, bowling and Kelpies. Our bake sale fundraising throughout the year pays for admissions for these trips. The children attend these at no extra cost. We are open to any new trip suggestions from parents.
