Out of School at Educare
The need for high quality childcare isn’t confined to term time and Educare has been operating an Out of School Club since 2012.
We introduced the service as an extension to our facilities, and it is proving very popular before and after the school day and during holidays.

The Out of School Club
We cater for children from the age of five upwards and are open from 7.15am until 6.30pm, Monday to Friday. We can accommodate up to 20 children and we apply the same learning, caring and sharing principles as the rest of the nursery, not least because many of the Out of School Club members have graduated from our other rooms!
The older children have their own room which is separate from the rest of the Educare building and which houses more advanced equipment including a laptop, TV, Playstation and more complicated construction toys.
Other resources include materials for baking and for arts and crafts. There is a home corner with dolls and books and there are clothes for dressing-up games.
During school holidays the Out of School Club children frequently head out of Educare, with visits to such attractions as the park, the leisure centre and the library.
Our After School Club Facilities
The After School club is fully equipped with PCs and interactive white boards and hosts a variety of role-play areas including
- Travel agent area
- Reading garden
- Costa coffee shop
- Dolls area
Food and Snacks
Children are offered breakfast prior to school and a snack after school. During school holidays a two course lunch is provided along with snacks during the day.
