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.


We are lucky to have a very successful in house before and after school club. We specialise in providing quality care for the children of St Mary’s. Our service is flexible and is designed to meet your needs as a busy, working parent. Subject to availability we can offer child care from 07:45 until morning registration and after school from 15:15 until 18:00.

Our aim is to provide each child with a positive play experience in caring surroundings, looked after by knowledgeable, experienced and dedicated staff. We aim to ensure your peace of mind by knowing that your child is being cared for in a safe, relaxed and fun environment.

Please email Mrs Young to discuss your requirements. Places will be allocated subject to availability and if there is no availability your name will be placed on our waiting list.

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 15:15 and 17:00. 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.

REMEMBER! Working Families Tax Credit can help your family claim back child care costs. Call 08453 003900 for more information. Fees can also be paid by childcare vouchers. If you require further information about the club or wish to discuss your requirements, please speak to Mrs Young.
