Smiles of Quorn, wraparound childcare that you can trust.


An Introduction to Smiles of Quorn

Smiles of Quorn Ltd is an Out of School Club that is fully insured and Ofsted registered , set up in response to a growing demand from working parents for a safe, happy, secure and stimulating childcare environment.

Smiles of Quorn is led by Rachel, the club's award winning owner and manager. Rachel is supported by a team of caring, enthusiastic and passionate Playleaders, Playworkers and Play Assistants at the club. Together our team have a wealth of experience working with children and all staff undertake professional development training whilst at the club, including a Safeguarding Qualification and Prevent Training as a minimum. All staff members have appropriate Enhanced DBS checks.

Smiles of Quorn is based in the village, just a healthy walk away from St.Bartholomew’s Church of England Primary School, within the newly refurbished, modern and fantastic facilities at The Deep End, Rawlins Academy. Research shows that 4 out of 5 children are not getting enough exercise and at Smiles we see this walk to and from school as a great positive. Just a short walk like this can help improve your child’s mood, self-esteem and energy whilst keeping them healthy. We also note the importance of the children not feeling the club is a continuation of their school day, the change of setting helps welcome the children into the relaxed and safe environment where they can play and socialise. We also feel the lovely modern setting, with all it’s great outdoor facilities will benefit the children greatly .

As a breakfast and after school club we follow the Playwork Principles, offering the children a free choice and independence whilst still providing a range of adult led activities.

At Smiles of Quorn, we understand the importance of healthy eating and therefore we provide a wide range of healthy and tasty breakfast and snacks for the children and always make fresh fruit, vegetables and salad available. We use fresh ingredients and follow statutory food hygiene guidelines, something that has been recognised by our achievement of a 5 star food hygiene rating at both of our previous inspections.

We strive to be an out of school childcare provider with a difference. Children are at very the heart of absolutely everything we do at Smiles of Quorn and we recognise each child as an individual with many diverse talents and skills. We want children to be truly happy and content in our setting so that you as their parent/carer feel confident that your child is well looked after and enjoys the club.
