Geographical remit: 


We are a small out of school club serving the local school community in term time, for wrap around care, and serving families in the west of York during school holidays. We are OFSTED registered and currently care for up to 46 children at our sessions.  We are not for profit and aim to provide an exciting range of activities and trips year round at an affordable price for working families. We operate 51 weeks of the year from 7.30 to 6pm, and employ 9 staff.

Without affordable childcare through our club, many families would struggle to return to work and stay in work.  Our summer programme enables children to experience trips and workshops that they might not otherwise encounter.  

We take pride in being accessible to all, and have places available for children requiring 1:1 care due to Special Educational needs and disabilities.

The Board of Trustees works with the club manager and staff team on our journey of continual improvement, providing quality childcare, in a safe and secure setting, whilst ensuring the education, skills and knowledge of our staff to deliver our service.


Every year we review our objectives to meet these aims

  • Exceptional governance and Charity commission compliance
  • A good OFSTED rating, with strong policies at our foundation
  • A staff team that is enthusiastic, with a desire to continually improve
  • A programme of exciting and fun activities and opportunities that keep our children happy, safe and eager to come back for more.
  • Effective development and marketing to grow our Summer programme
  • Advancement with the times, to embrace social media and technology to help us communicate better
  • A long term aim to develop a second building and expand our club to meet local community needs, in addition to meeting our own.

We meet once a month and work extra time towards delivering these aims.
