Fees and considerations


Costs will depend on how long your child attends, and the activities the scheme runs. Some have reductions for siblings.

Questions to ask out of school childcare providers

  • What do the children do?
  • Are there activities such as art, sports or music?
  • How are they supervised?
  • How much individual attention do they get?
  • Do they offer homework facilities?
  • Who is the leader, and what kind of qualifications and experience do they (and other staff) have?
  • Is there a separate section for younger children?
  • Is there a quiet area where children can relax or take some time out?
