Updated School’s Out information

31st Aug 2019

School's Out is an independent, private after school childcare that is currently based in a classroom at Castle Gardens P.S. We are registered with social services, so parents can rest assured that we meet and often exceed the required minimum standards.

At School's Out we offer a warm and welcoming atmosphere where your children can relax after a long day at school. School's Out is a Playwork based setting which means we believe that play is extremely important to children's learning and development. We promote child-centred, free-play and encourage children to use their imaginations when in School's Out. Children are given the freedom of choice in any activity they choose to do, which empowers them to make their own decisions resulting in increased self-confidence and self-esteem.

Advantages to school based childcare facility:

  • Children come straight to the room, no travelling in the car for pick-ups at other schools!
  • Convenient location for parents
  • Friendly and relaxed atmosphere where children choose what they want to do each day
  • Flexible with bookings - last minute and casual bookings welcome but subject to availability.

We have many toys and games for all ages, a wide range of craft materials and spend a LOT of time outdoors, mostly on the big Jungle Gym or making all sorts of delights in our mud kitchen!!
