Playworks Out of School Clubs
Playworks Out of School Clubs run term time, for children from 3 to 11 years of age.
We provide flexible care before and after the school day, around nursery school hours and during school holidays.
Our clubs are often based on school premises and opeate from early in the morning through to mid evening to provide a complete childcare service to cater for parents/carers needs.
A full list of Playworks settings are listed here.
At Playworks, we have helped to set up and run a number of Out of School clubs for other childcare providers. For schools looking to establish their own Breakfast, After School, Wrap Around or Holiday Club, we are happy to talk about how that could work for you.
We’ve learned what works – and what doesn’t, and we provide advice and support via our associate, Playworks One – for more details click here.
Our approach is all about establishing something local, that is often run within the school’s own premises. Our flexible support package can help any interested individuals or teams establish and run an Out of School Clubs, in partnership with the school. We can offer advice and administrative support, drawing on our philosophy as a growing non-profit organisation.
Playworks runs clubs for children from 3 to 11 years of age. Our services include:
Enabling parents to start the working day calmly and efficiently. Playworks Breakfast Clubs typically operate from around 7.30am until the beginning of the school day. Children are provided with a healthy breakfast in a sociable environment, with activities arranged to ensure they are entertained before scheduled lessons begin and always get to school on time. PlaySports Coaches (from our sister company PlaySports) are based on site in our Breakfast Clubs and provide the children with a Sunrise Session, which aims to get the children physically active and ready for the school day.
