Late Stay Clubs are an extended after school club that tag onto the end of the day, they normally run until 5.30/6.00pm (this depends on each individual school’s requirements).
The main purpose of these clubs is for convenience for parents and guardians.Late stay clubs are great for working parents/guardians who need the flexibility to pick their children up a little bit later. During late stay clubs, children are given a snack or small meal and a drink (this depends on the menu that the school has chosen to suit parents best – please click here to see an example menu). After eating, children are then offered to choose from two or three activities (depending on the group size), which can range from multi-sports, to arts and crafts, to cooking or film time.
The best way to book a late stay club for your child, to ensure they get a place, is to book online in advance (click here to make a booking). We load up each term’s dates in advance so parents and guardians can organise their childcare for the term. We aim to be as flexible as we can with emergency/adhoc bookings so that parents and guardians can use these clubs on an adhoc basis if they need to (for example; if they know they are going to finish work slightly later that day), therefore, should you need to use the service last minute, we ask that parents or guardians inform us before 10am on the day that they wish to use the service, and, providing that we have a space for your child, we will be happy to accommodate your request. If parents/guardians inform us that they need to use the service after 10am on the same day we unfortunately cannot accommodate this due to administrative and staffing purposes.
