After School Care

During the school term our after school care programme offers children a space where they can be creative, have fun and develop their full potential spiritually, physically, emotionally and socially.

Our after school activities include arts, crafts, planned games and sports. We also run weekly clubs such as:

Baking, Origami, Pokemon, Cricket, Sports, Book, Science and a Christian based Boys and Girls Zones. All children are welcome to join in their preferred activities and we are always open to new suggestions!

Please note, 5 years old children starting after school care will take part into our SMARTIE5 programme, please click here for all information you need regards our exclusive care for children starting a new journey!
