Before and After School Clubs

Out of School Clubs
Out of school clubs (sometimes called kid’s clubs) often open before and after school. Some also open all day during the school holidays.
They provide childcare and play opportunities for children to relax and develop new skills while their parents are working or studying, leaving them safe in the knowledge that the children are being well looked after by qualified, experienced staff.Many out of school clubs operate on school premises, although some use community or church halls that are within safe walking distance of the school.
Those clubs that open in the school holidays provide parents with peace of mind that their children are going to be in a safe environment, being creative and occupied while they are in work.
Children are only allowed to leave the club with a known and named adult.Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids’ Clubs are a Wales wide organisation that helps set up, develop and support out of school clubs. They help clubs or prospective clubs to apply for funding and they train and support club staff during the set up and subsequent running of the club.
