Schools Out Club Balham - After School Care

The Club is a school based club and provides both before and after school care. The clubs provide a friendly, caring and safe environment in which children are encouraged to develop social, personal and recreational skills under the supervision of trained and experienced staff.

The Breakfast Club opens each morning providing the children with a nutritious and healthy start to the day. The menu choice always includes cereals, toast, yoghurt and fresh fruit. Before the children are escorted to class, they have time to play quietly and participate in planned crafts. 

At the end of the school day the children are collected and provided with a light cooked tea from a menu which includes ideas from the children. The children are free to participate in a variety of activities; this includes cooking, imaginative play, arts and crafts, sports, music and I.T.
