The after-school club is a small friendly consistent team of trained and confident workers whose only requisite is for the children to have fun and enjoy themselves in a happy, secure and safe environment.

At the after-school club we endeavour to be flexible in our approach to help and support all our children. As a staff team we are enthusiastic, conscientious, committed, respectful and have good child care skills and we are eager to do well for the children who attend the after-school club.
