Welcome to Firbobs Out of School Club. Firbobs was started in September 2006, The plan was to work with a friend and look after 16 children from Town Lane and Higher Bebington Juniors! The first night we had 20 children and 4 staff. Today we look after over 600 children each week across 10 schools on the Wirral with nearly 50 Team members.
From the start we have been commited to offering reliable, flexable and affordable child care to the highest quality. Parents/ carers pay for what they need. We accommodate shift patterns, occasional needs as well as children who just want to join in the fun.
Before anything else I'm a mum! I understand the desire for parents to have childcare that the children want to go to. We work hard as a team to ensure children get to do the things they would do home i.e. play with friends, chill out, football, crafts, computer games, riding bikes, scooters, skates, the list is endless. It's all about free choice for the children. Please don't blame us if your child doesn't want to leave when you collect. It's a great sign we are doing our job right.
