We are open from 3.30pm to 6.30pm Monday to Friday term-time.
We collect children at 3.30pm Monday to Friday from Halstow Primary School and escort them to one of two places:
- The Bell House, a large building separate from the school but within the school grounds;
- across the top of East Greenwich Pleasaunce to The Bridge (a 3 minute walk)
If you are keen to register your child for our After School and Breakfast Clubs for Halstow School please fill out the Registration Form
We also welcome home-schooled children at our after school and holiday club: we have found the socialisation benefits all of the children in our care. Please get in touch.
On arrival, we provide a substantial snack comprising both savoury and sweet sandwiches, wraps and bagels, rice cakes, crackers, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, carrots and peppers, oranges, raisins, bananas and pineapple and plenty of water to drink. Here’s our delicious menu as chosen by the children Our delicious and healthy snack menu!
We promote free play: we have lots of different games, arts and crafts and activities inside and outside and the children are free to choose what they would like to do. We play football, tennis, rugby, running games, create obstacle courses and we have our own Club Sports Day!
At 5pm it is circle time and we all sit down together and read a story, have show and tell and some raisins or a cracker. It is a special time of day when children from Reception up to year 6 all sit and listen to each other. Often a child will play a piece on their musical instrument, or show us what they have made at club that day. Many times we have been treated to a play or a display of gymnastics. We love to hear what everyone is doing at the weekend or during the holidays and it’s wonderful to watch the children grow in confidence and contribute. We celebrate every child’s birthday with a cake and respect all festivals throughout the year.
