LBL Early Years
LBL runs an Early Years Breakfast and After School club for Martin nursery and reception children. The club runs in accordance with EYFS guidelines and provides a fun and safe environment for children to play and learn with freedom and enjoyment.
We will admit children entering nursery and reception in September to our Early Years LBL, which runs from the Hedgehogs classoom in the nursery. Once the settling in period is complete, you can book any sessions you need.
The staff will provide a friendly and welcoming environment for the children and will provide approprite activities in line with the EYFS. Our priority is to ensure children feel safe and happy to be a part of LBL. From Y1 onwards, children will attend 'big' LBL which runs from the school dining hall.
Where will the Early Years club be held?
The breakfast club is held in the Portakabin (opposite the nursery) and the after school club is held in the Hedgehogs classroom. Children will have also have access to the nursery playground after school.
What are your opening times for the Early Years Club?
The breakfast club opens at 7:30am. The after school club closes at 6pm.
What are your prices?
Breakfast club: £7 per session
After School Club: £20 per session
Holiday Clubs: £36 per session
Payment can be made via debit or credit card, Childcare Vouchers or Tax-Free Childcare. You can also keep funds in your 'wallet' with your iPal account with which to pay for LBL sessions.
Who will run the Early Years clubs?
The breakfast and after school clubs are run by current Martin School and LBL staff. Due to the ages of the children, the Ofsted guidelines for ratios are different to our current LBL setting so we have taken on staff who know the school and the children well, with the relevant qualifications to work with Early Years children.
What about school holidays?
Nursery aged children who attend Martin School can join the holiday club from February half term onwards.
In the summer holidays,we can accept children aged 4-5 from any school who will be starting reception that September.
Reception children can join the holiday club from October half term onwards.
The children will join the main holiday club in the dining hall but we will have a dedicated member of staff for the EYFS children and they will be cared for in accordance with EYFS guidelines and regulations. Please ensure you book an Early Years place for your nursery or reception child during the booking process.
Where is 'big' LBL held?
LBL is run in the dining hall at Martin School. We have our own designated space, our own playground, clothes pegs and toilets situated nearby and a kitchen. It is also a secure location as the entrances will be gated which means the children are safe and we can manage pick up times efficiently. We also have access to a large playground area and children are encouraged to play outside at each session, weather permitting.
Do you offer sibling discounts?
We do offer sibling discounts on full sessions for Martin School pupils from Y1-Y6. The rates are as follows:
Full session for first child: £10
Full session for siblings: £8
Holiday Club info
Our holiday clubs are open to children from all primary schools. We accept children from reception age to Y6. We also accept children from Martin School nursery once they are physically and emotionally ready to attend the club, usually from Feb half term onwards.

We offer a wide range of activities including arts and crafts, sports, team games, books, puzzles, toys, board games and plenty more! Children are encouraged to play freely and as they wish. The children all play as a group in line with our free play philosophy, although there are times where we will split activities according to age for safety reasons.
