Inset Day Childcare


SCL’s Inset Day Activities provide stress-free, quality childcare for working parents while teachers are fulfilling Inset commitments. Designed for children aged 4-11 years, the programmes are action-packed, fun and engaging. They are also a great opportunity for children to try new activities and meet new friends.

Available at participating schools, our Inset Day Activities typically run between 8am and 6pm, enabling busy parents to continue with their normal daily routine in the knowledge that their children are being entertained, active and are in safe hands.

Example activities include:

Outdoor Games: Miniature Gardens, Nature A-Z, Team Trekking, 40-40, Adventure Playground

Team Games: Uni-Hockey, Crazy Cricket, Benchball, Football, Basketball and Didi Car Racing

Activity Games: Ultimate Dodgeball, Gladiator Target Zone, Splat, Arts & Crafts

Cool Down Games: Blindfold Hide and Seek and Duck-Duck Goose
