After School Club

Ellesmere Merekats Afterschool Club Care

Our after school care is led by experienced Teaching Assistants, offering flexible and reliable out of school hours care for pupils aged 3-11 years during term time.

As well as peace of mind, our care gives you:

  • The reassurance of an OfSTED inspected establishment within our safe and happy environment.
  • Staff who are fully CRB/DBS checked and First Aid trained.
  • A wide range of fun activities to suit all ages and interests including games, arts, crafts and outdoor play.
  • Quality childcare supervised by experienced and friendly staff in a well-resourced learning environment.

We can accommodate up to 26 children in the space and we find that numbers vary considerably during the week. We work on a ratio of one adult to eight children.

After-school Club runs from 3.15 to 5.45pm. Our after-school club is very popular. It would therefore be appreciated if you can give plenty of notice when booking your child in. However, we do appreciate that there are times when last minute bookings need to be made and we will try to facilitate such bookings where possible.
