Ecclesall Kids Club provides out of school care for 4 to 11 year olds. Our mission is to provide low cost, high quality and stimulating playcare in a welcoming and friendly environment.
We offer Breakfast, After School Club and Holiday Club throughout the year on premises we let from Ecclesall Primary, though we are an independent not-for-profit business in our own right, run by parents for parents. We have fun outdoors and indoors; we go on trips; we play games, do craft activities, read books; we have age-appropriate TEC equipment and age-appropriate TV available. We offer a semi-structured environment with lots of guided opportunities and lots of free play and choice too.
Ecclesall Primary Club is open 7:40am until the start of the school day. Breakfast club costs £3.80 per session and After school Club costs £7.00 per session. Holiday Club costs £21.00 for a full day, or £10.50 for a half-day.
Examples of the Breakfast Club food items we provide and snack items we provide at after school are contained in our Healthy Eating Policy.
We are very busy at Infants and Juniors After-School Club and we are at our busiest on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. After-School Club runs from the end of the school day to 5.45pm when we close. If you can’t book the places you need on Magic Booking, please keep looking as places may become available later on; we ask parents to cancel all places they do not need. Parents cancel places all the time especially over summer as their child-care needs for September change. As well as longer term bookings, some ad-hoc/one-off places and late bookings may be available as well. You can try booking these up to 24 hours before the session on Magic Booking or in an emergency on the day you can contact the club by phone or via email@example.com. We cannot exceed our maximum staff-to-child ratios on any day for insurance purposes and Ofsted requirements. We will always try to accommodate requests but when we are full unfortunately that will not be possible.
We request that parents cancel all sessions they do not need so others can use them. This can be done 24/7 via Magic Booking. The main reason we need parents to cancel is that if a child does not turn up to After-School Club and we expect them, staff have to spend time trying to track them down rather than caring for other children who are there. If the child remains unaccounted for and we cannot get hold of the parents we are duty bound to inform the police for safeguarding reasons, just as schools do. If the session is cancelled 30 calendar days or more in advance you will receive a credit on your account. If its less than 30 days you won’t receive a credit but the more people who cancel the more places there will be in the system for everyone, especially when emergency childcare is needed. As we are not-for-profit and we keep our prices low we can’t afford to carry spare unused places just in case they are needed. The more parents who cancel, the more chance we have to reduce the cancellation period to less than 30 days and keep doing so over time, which will be a benefit to all our users.
If we become full we will operate a waiting list —please see our bookings policy for details of how we prioritise the allocation of places.
