Schemes for children
These provide a safe place for your child to wait until school starts. Many also provide a healthy low cost breakfast. They normally run for less than two hours and therefore do not need to be registered with Ofsted.
The opening times vary. Some start at 7.30am, others later and will finish when school starts. If the times don't meet your needs, talk to the manager to see if they can offer alternative hours.
After School Club
These provide care and play activities or additional supported study for your child after school has finished.
They usually open from the end of the school day and finish around 5.30pm to 6pm. If the times don't meet your needs talk to the manager to see if they can offer alternative hours.
Holiday clubs offer childcare during the school holidays. Some are open every week during the holidays and some are open part-time. They are generally open to children aged from 4 to 12, although some are able to cater for older children. Holiday clubs can also be referred to as out of school clubs.
Activities can include arts and crafts, sports, music, drama and outings. They are usually run in schools or leisure centres, with half days sometimes being available. Your local leisure centre may also have information about holiday playschemes and activities on their website.
You can download our current Breakfast and after school clubs and Holiday playscheme or search using the family resource directory.
