After School Service

Kids Klubhouse Afterschool Programme   –  2.00 PM – 6.00 PM

The after school option is a small and intimate club so children will feel relaxed in the creative and bright environment, allowing them to chillax after a long day of school. It is a safe, age-appropriate space where children can continue to develop their social, physical, intellectual and emotional skills. We cater for all age groups, classes and needs. The afternoon routine revolves around the children and ensuring that all of their needs are met, big or small.

Children will be provided with a calm and relaxing environment with a choice of play activities to end their day at school

Activities to include:

Weekly Theme painting and games, Seasonal Activities, Home from Home box, Lego, Music, Playdough, Exercise, Dance, Book Time, Scrape Book Art, Free Play to name but a few activities….

Our after-school team will communicate regularly with the children about their activities and give genuine consideration to their feedback and suggestions. Our aim is to create a space that children love to spend time in – so who better to give us this guidance?!

Children will receive help and support in their homework activities (if desired).

After School Fee is based on an Hourly Rate
