SCL’s After School Care Clubs are more than just childcare. They’ve been designed to stimulate learning while ensuring that your child gets their recommended 60 minutes of physical activity a day, all delivered by qualified & professional staff. After School Care Club runs everyday, Monday to Friday. 

Rest assured, we will be operating our clubs with your children's safety and wellbeing at the forefront, following our Covid-Safe Operating Procedures advised by the latest guidelines from the government and Department for Education. You can read about our Covid19 safe procedures here.

  • ‘Bolt-on’ sessions are available enabling children to join the after school care club when they are finished at their after school club
  • Stimulating, fun and age-appropriate sport or dance-based activities
  • Our qualified and experienced tutors will ensure children enjoy themselves, have fun and learn new skills.
