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 Clubs and Holiday Clubs throughout the year on premises we let from Ecclesall Infants and Junior School 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 do games, craft activities, books; we have televisions available and a games console at the juniors.

Infants are open 7:40–8:50 am and 3:10–5:45 pm and juniors are open 7:40–8:40 am and 3:25–5:45 pm. 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. These costs will be applied to invoices issued after February half term.

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 oversubscribed at Infants and Juniors After-School Club and have waiting lists on all days, though we are busiest on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. We do have limited Breakfast Club places at both locations on most days. When we are full we operate a waiting list —please see our bookings policy for details of how we prioritise the allocation of places.

General Information

Our Holiday Club dates are set at the beginning of the year and advertised for the whole year to allow our parents and carers to plan. The Programme varies on a daily basis and this is arranged and published nearer to the time of each Holiday Club. We have lots of fun and exciting activities and trips and lots of opportunities to make new friends.

We are open 8.30 am–5.45 pm for full day sessions costing £21. We also run half days sessions 8.30 am–1 pm or 1 pm–5.45 pm at a cost of £10.50 per half day session. We request payment for Holiday Club in advance and unfortunately cancellations are non-refundable.

We produce a timetable at least 3 weeks before the start of the Holiday Club and as soon as possible before our booking deadline to ensure our parents and children are able to make choices about which days they will attend (including which days there will be trips and additional costs).

We try to ensure we keep additional costs to a minimum but to ensure we have a variety of activities on offer we may request an additional payment to cover the costs. These additional payments will be clearly marked on the advance timetable with an explanation of what the costs are for and are payable in advance alongside the full or half day Holiday Club payment.

As we have to arrange our staffing to match the numbers of children booked in we request that parents book by the deadline set otherwise we are unable to guarantee a Holiday Club place.

To check availability and book Holiday Club, please speak to the staff at the junior Club or telephone during club opening hours (7:40–8:40 am and 3:25–5:45 pm) on 0114 236 6621.
