Out of School Club

Brambles is our thriving and exciting out of school club with the emphasis on fun. We take up to 30 children before and after school and our wide range of activities include art and crafts, games, television, computer games, dressing up, looking after our three rabbits and swimming three times a week.  We are staffed to a ratio of 1 adult to 8 children at all times.

We are open all year round, including school holidays, when we are open from 8 am to 6 pm.  Your child/ren may attend any sessions to suit your requirements.

Working parents know that their children are happy and in a safe, caring environment and the children love the fun and games so much so, that they don't always want to go home!
