Preschool Roundhouse Opening

James Brokenshire MP Opens Roundhouse

The ADO Mini-Explorers children, staff and parents had a very special guest on Friday 11th May, when Old Bexley and Sidcup MP, James Brokenshire and his lovely wife Cathy, visited the Preschool for the official opening of our Roundhouse. We would like to thank James for taking time out of his very busy schedule in his new role in government as Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, to support us as a local community focussed company.

A Production Line of Talent

All Rounder Tatiana Gets Awarded

Another Achievement Winner

Lewis Sticks To His Tasks To Become A Winner

We are pleased to announce that our 7th Jack Petchey Achievement Award winner is Lewis Stickings. Voted by his peers, Lewis has been Mr Dependable for at least a year now, volunteering on a Saturday to be a key member of the animal care team. Lewis always turns up, yes even when we had thick snow recently, working the Saturday session at both Poets Corner and at the main office, cracking on with his job come rain or shine. Recently completing two weeks of work experience at ADO, Lewis, currently studying at Hadlow Animal Management College, would like to work towards becoming a Marine Biologist eventually. He's pretty handy at catching the Guinea Pigs, so marine life should be easy-peasy! He has pledged his prize money towards building a new custom made enclosure for Bertha, ADO's enormous Burmese Python. Well done Lewis, a top man!

Legend Bob Passes Away

Bob Finally Says Goodbye To Us All

When it comes to legends, Bob the Bearded Dragon was up there with the most popular animals we have ever had working with us here at ADO. Sadly he passed away yesterday evening in his sleep. 

Bob joined us at the very beginning of Animal Days Out and was part of the first ever set of animals we purchased. He was already 5-6 years old in 2011, so he must have been probably 13 years old at the end. A fine innings for a Bearded Dragon!

He was very popular and with his late partner Betty, they were a great double act at events, meeting thousands of people during their formative years and helping many children, young people and adults overcome fears and giving them confidence.. He sired over 30 baby Bearded Dragons with Betty, out living some of them. 

Bob will never be forgotten. RIP Bob.

Silly Sally By Name, Silly Sally By Nature!

Go Fund Me For Sally

Our beautiful therapy horse Silly Sally recently obtained a serious wound which has required around the clock care. Although Sally is on the mend, she still requires treatment, which has all proven to be very costly. As we are a small Not For Profit Community Interest Company, we have set up the Go Fund Me page to try and help cover some of Sally's vet bills and enable us to continue to provide the best possible care for her and get her well again for the benefit of the children, young people and adults that access her through equine therapy.

A Solution For Working ParentsEarly & Late Club for Working Parents and Carers

Peace Of Mind For Full Day Childcare

Can you not get time off work? Do you have an important meeting in your calendar? If you need first class childcare then our Early and Late Clubs provide the best solution for your commitments.

Early Club

What is easier than to be able to drop your children off on the way to work. Our Early Club starts bright and breezy at 8am on the dot. You can drop your children off at any time from 8am. We don't clock watch! We can get your child registered in a jiffy so that you can get off to your place of work knowing you don't have to worry about them. Our Early Club is popular. There are many activities for the children to do before registration at 9.45am. We don't just sit your children in a corner with some paper and pencils. We have a programme of activities even before the full days activities start. The older children will often team up with the club leaders to help prepare some of the activities for later in the day. They may be involved in supporting some animal care as well. 

Early Years children also get the benefit of having a light breakfast to get them going in the morning.

Late Club

The Late Club is a session that means that as parents and carers you don't have to worry or rush off early from work to pick your children up at our normal finish time of 3.30pm or 4pm. Our Late Club continues until 6pm, leaving plenty of time to pick them up. Again, the flexible timings mean that you can pick your children up at any time until the 6pm deadline. The Late Club is packed full of relaxing play periods to help your children calm down at the end of a long day for them. Older children will often help support our leaders throughout the late session.

Pricing

Our pricing for the Early and Late Clubs are very reasonable. Our early years clubs, ages 2 to 5 years are slightly more expensive due to increased staffing ratios as enforced by Ofsted and includes a light breakfast. The pricing works out cheaper than your average childcare costs.

Early Club - £5 for Rangers or £7 for Mini & Young Explorers

Late Club - £5 for Rangers or £8 for Mini & Young Explorers

So that's £10 per day or £15 for Early Years for peace of mind that you have your children in safe hands so that you or the rest of your family can get on with on with what you need to do.

How To BookADO Education

Simply add the required number of Early, Late or both Early and Late Clubs to your registration form when asked to do so. We will then calculate the price and let you know when you ring to pay.

Ad-hoc Early and Late Clubs can still be booked throughout the course of the week in case anything crops up where you need childcare. Simply ring the office first, enquire whether there is space and then pay over the phone with your Credit or Debit card or pay by Online Banking Transfer.
