Mission Statement

Happy Faces Out of School Care will offer the parent/carer quality, long-term, affordable, supportive childcare. They will have peace of mind in the knowledge that their child has access to a wide variety of organised activities in a safe, happy relaxed and stimulating environment where they can play, learn and develop freely. In line with OFSTED guidelines the club is both non-discriminatory and inclusive.
Happy Faces at Dundonald was opened in September 1990. It has grown to become one of the leading establishments in the London Borough of Merton providing extended care for children, between the ages of 3 and 11 years. Provision of after school and holiday playschemes allows parents to continue working or studying but also a fun environment where children can learn and socialise through play with their peers.
All children’s needs, including those required by the Early Years Foundation Stage or with disabilities are met by staff who are either qualified playworkers, early years professionals or experienced with a sound background of working with primary school aged children. On going training ensures their knowledge is always up to date.
At Happy Faces we operate a high staff to child ratio which gives the children and staff the best opportunity to build up trusting relationships with each other, which is most important to the smooth running of such a scheme.
All members are cleared by the Criminal Records Bureau as required by Ofsted and a high percentage of them are qualified first-aiders.
Happy Faces @ Dundonald is one of only four after school providers within the Borough that has obtained a Quality Assurance Certificate, which recognises the high standards and excellent provision that is provided. (Our other centre at Chase also obtained this prestigious award.)
Happy Faces After School Care operates each day during term time. Once registration is complete the children are served a light meal and refreshments. They are then free to choose from a range of both indoor and outdoor activities. Staff are on hand to supervise, help and extend the children’s play where needed.
Happy Faces Holiday Club, offers full day care during the holidays. Children can be dropped off and collected within the opening hours to suit the parents needs. A pack lunch will need to be provided. The weeks have a theme, i.e. Flight, and the day is structured to include craft activities, cooking, team games, time in the park and free time. Trips are arranged twice a week to places of interest and fun in the locality and beyond, using public transport, mini-busses or hired coach. A great time is always had by all!
