Our Kids Club

Many parents think their childcare headaches will be over when their children start school.  However the reality is often very different. The mismatch between school hours and the average working times of parents, make this gap the most difficult for parents to find a consistent and quality  childcare option.

WELCOME TO ST MARY’S KIDS CLUB! We are the solution to your childcare problems! We specialise in providing quality after school care for the children of St Mary’s. Our service is flexible and is designed to meet your needs as a busy or working parent. Additionally St Marys Kids Club has the Quality Assurance (QA) Kite mark.

OUR AIM is to provide your children with a positive play experience in caring surroundings and also ensure your peace of mind by knowing that your precious child is being cared for in a safe, reliable and fun environment.

Why do children enjoy coming to St Mary’s Kids Club? Because our experienced staff LISTEN to them, TALK to them and WATCH to see what they enjoy doing best. This means that when our team gets together each week to plan our activities, we know that we will create an exciting programme, which is tailored to provide FUN for all the children. The children can enjoy a range of activities such as: Arts and crafts, outdoor play, reading, construction (Lego, building blocks etc) small world play (train set, dolls house etc) imaginative play (puppet theatre, dressing up etc) T.V. time, games and help with homework (if requested). St Mary’s Kids Club aims to promote healthy eating and the snacks we offer reflect this. The children are offered a drink and snack at both 3:15pm and 5pm. We realise how hungry children get!

EARLY YEARS FOUNDATION STAGE (EYFS) We adhere to the Ofsted standards for the Early Years Foundation Stage, which exist for school clubs who support children up to the term before they are six.
