Out of School Club
We provide high quality childcare in a safe and stimulating environment for your child to enjoy with their friends. Some of our children attend because their parents are working and some simply because they enjoy being here.
We would suggest that you visit with your child to meet the staff, see the activities that are happening and let them see the other children enjoying themselves in our relaxed setting.
All children from the age of 3 to 12 years are welcome.
If you’d like to book your child in to Afterschool please contact us, information below.
