About Me

UPDATE : 3 full time places available from September 2021 for after school club ( Fawcett Primary ) .

My name is Kate and together with my daughter and husband we run an out of school TOT LOT CLUB .
We are based in Trumpington ``Halo`` development just off Long Road and we attend Fawcett Primary school
offering drop offs , collections and after school care .

All of us are fully qualified and are on Ofsted`s all three registers . We all have Pediatric First Aid certificates, ensuring better care and safeguarding for children in our care.

There is a wide selection of games, toys, musical instruments, sport equipment, books, dvds etc. We pride ourselves especially with the provision of very healthy home made dinners and other meals like breakfast and snacks. We are conscious of how much impact processed sugars and table salt can make on your child`s health and use healthier replacements to cook (Himalayan salt, sea salt, healthier oils etc).
Fruit and vegetable snacks are available at all times, also fresh water and selection of cold pressed juice.
Deserts are made with organic flour and are sweetened with brown sugar, honey or date paste.
Fresh bread is baked every morning for breakfast.
As an experienced cook I am fully aware of food allergies, poisoning hazards and food hygiene which is confirmed by qualifications I gained in this area.

We are open in the mornings from 6am to 9am and in the afternoons from 3pm to 8pm.

Places are limited as we are childminders working from domestic premises.

All children of school age from Fawcett or Trumpington Park Primary.

If you expect your child

1) to be looked after by qualified team

2) to have healthy meals cooked for them every day

3) to play with toys and games instead of watching TV

4) to play with friends of his age in the park after school

5) to stay after school in a pleasant happy and clean home with access to a garden and terrace

-please email for further details , policies and prospectus.

We used the Tot Lot Club Monday-Friday from November-December and March due to an unexpected issue with our previous childcare arrangements. Kate was very responsive and accommodating in sorting out full-time daycare and after-school care for us at the last minute and we can't thank her enough.

Our children (aged 1 and 6) really enjoyed their time for Kate, Natalia and Flavio. I was worried about the toddler not settling in well (as she'd not been to a childminder or nursery before and Covid meant I couldn't go in with her), but she had a lovely time from day one. They have lots of great toys and the kids enjoy interacting with each other. My 6 year old usually doesn't tell us anything about his day, but has mentioned Flavio's magic tricks and the cool toys he's played with on many occasions. We get good communication at the end of the day as to what the kids have been up to. And, as mentioned above, Kate is very on top of admin issues and resolves things very quickly.

We can highly recommend the Tot Lot Club, and the only reason we have stopped going is because of the personal circumstances (third lockdown, moving house and maternity leave).

Sarah thank you so much 😘 We loved working with your children, they have always been well behaved and so kind towards others -they made our days brighter .I am sure they will give their little brother a great example to follow :).
We miss them a lot but it is very comforting to know they are so happy with all the changes - send warm hugs to them .Our door will always remain open to you .
All the best - keep healthy.
Kate, Flavio and Natalia

We enjoyed spending time with Kate, Flavio and Natalia. My daughter Naomi is looking forward to returning for more fun in September.

My daughter is going to be 5 in August and she has been going to Tot Lot Club since they opened, twice a week! :-) Kate and Flavio have been fantastic since meeting them. Sophie is really happy there and when lockdown started she made a point of going by their house for a social distance hello because she missed being there so much. Sophie plays and eats really well when at their care and Kate always lets me know how Sophie did and how she was afterwards once she has gone home. I could not recommend them enough and Sophie will definitely be back at Tot Lot when the schools are back and I am back at work.
