Dear parents,


It is with great sadness that we are announcing that The Grange Partnership is permanently closing on the 23rd July 2021. There are many factors influencing our sad decision. 


Unfortunately this also means we will not be running the holiday club this summer, our last day providing care for children will be 23rd July.

All payments for bookings for after 23rd July 2021 will be refunded. We will be in touch very soon with further details for any refunds owing subject to our terms and conditions.


We would like to say a big thank you to all the wonderful staff who have worked for us over the years, we couldn’t have done it without them.
We have loved looking after all the children, watching them grow and flourish. We will miss them all very much.
We are very sad to have come to this decision after 23 years of trading.
We wish you and your families all the best in the future.

Thank you,
The Grange Partnership

The Grange Partnership is a private business which has been established for over 20 years and runs out of school clubs based on school sites in North Harrogate. The management team consists of Moira Burns (Owner), Wendy Thickett (Owner), Steve Burns (Finance Manager), Donna Anderson (Senior Manager) and Sian Kennedy (Operations Manager).

Each club has a team of qualified staff, led by an experienced manager, who work closely with their associated school to ensure seamless transitions between class and club. The staff plan and provide a wide range of both child and adult led activities which reflect a balanced view of the world and an appreciation of the rich diversity of our society. We offer a free flow play environment which accommodates each child’s individual requirements. All our clubs have access to suitable indoor and outdoor arears for energetic games (check out the images in our gallery or on our Facebook pages) as physical activity is a very important part of all sessions. We encourage risky play but safety is paramount at all times and we provide choices and challenges within safe and supervised limits. We welcome children from 3 to 11 years old.

We provide a warm loving environment and offer stimulating play opportunities based on traditional values with a modern outlook, free from prejudice and discrimination, creating stimulating growth opportunities through play. All children will be respected, their individuality and potential recognised and nurtured. They will be encouraged to explore, acknowledge and value similarities and differences between themselves and others. No child or adult will be excluded on the grounds of race, gender, ability, disability, culture, language, religion, size or family status. Staff will be valued and encouraged to develop their confidence, self-esteem and professional status to reach their full potential.

 

Comments from some of our parents 

“My children both attend after school club 5 days a week and breakfast club occasionally. The youngest started attending from her first day at school and was made so welcome. The staff are amazing make it enjoyable for all the children who attend. Even in this difficult time and the fact that there are year group bubbles so no free play as such, both children still look forward to attending each afternoon. All possible measures are in place to ensure they are kept safe. The staff are warm, friendly, approachable and always available to have a chat. The holiday clubs are run well and offer a wide range of activities each day – again both children are looking forward to attending in October half term.”

“Starting school (especially in light of the current climate) is nerve-wracking enough for many families, let alone introducing your child to wrap around care. Fortunately, the fabulous team at The Grange Partnership have made the process an absolute breeze. My son skips happily out of their care with a huge smile on his face, and the team have been exemplary in striking the perfect balance between ensuring the system is Covid secure, whilst remaining fun, informal and inclusive. Couldn’t be happier – thank you so much!”

“ My children attend the holiday club run at Bilton Grange School. I was concerned how they would fit in as they go to a different school to all the other children at holiday club. The staff were so friendly and welcoming to me and my children that they settled in straight away. My children love going to club and are always asking when they will be going again! The range of activities they offer is great, it means there is always something for them to do that they enjoy and they love all the outside play that they get to do. It is so reassuring to know that my children are greeted by warm and friendly staff who put children and ease and ensure that each child has a good time. Thank you and keep up the good work!”

“As a working mum I don’t think I could cope without Bilton Grangers – the wrap around school care is essential for me to continue working and is fantastic . Both my sons go after school some of the week.  My youngest has just started school and his favourite part of the week is after school club which says it all. The team are great and have worked really hard to come back after all these difficult months to provide a safe Welcoming environment for the children . “

” My son was worried about coming back to Bilton Grangers with the new measures but he settled back in quickly. He has enjoyed having free choice of crafts and games in his bubble and creating his own artwork.  “

And from one of our children, aged 4

” I thought it would be scary coming here but it’s not, it’s a lot of fun. ”
