We operate an after school club for pre-school and school aged children. We have an extensive range of activities and resources to meet children’s individual interests. At 4pm we offer the children toast / fruit and we also have facilities to reheat meals from home. We pride ourselves on having staff qualified in play works to implement both this and the holiday club provision.
