Out of School Care

Clever Clogs also provide out of school care including holiday fun clubs and before and after school care for children aged up to 11.

Our out of school services offer parents of older children flexible childcare solutions that  work around work and other commitments.

With ever demanding work schedules it can be tough to juggle getting the kids to school and making it to work on time, particularly when you have to drop off one child at school and another at nursery.  Our out of school care is designed to take the hassle out of the school run by providing flexible solutions that work around school and work hours.

We provide drop off services which enable parents to leave their children at the nursery in the morning while our qualified staff escort the children at the local schools at the appropriate time.

In addition we provide after school care where we collect children from school and look after them in a dedicated out of school area of the nursery until parents are ready to pick them up.

The separate area for older children

Older children have a quiet area for homework and activities such as games, arts and crafts and games consoles.  Children are supervised at all times and help with homework is available. This service is aimed at school aged children up to 11 years old.  We pick up and drop off during school term time.

The children will be escorted by our fully and trained and experienced staff at all times.  Having operated this service for a number of years, we have built up strong relationships with the participating schools and we have a very robust set of procedures to ensure that children are safe and secure in our care.
