We are delighted to be able to offer excellent service to families through the BRIGHT START wraparound childcare scheme. This is high quality after school provision which is registered with Social Services and is staffed by 2 well-qualified and experienced childcare practitioners.

Our service allows working mums or those in training, to do what they have to do, knowing that their child is being cared for on-site, after school ends. Here children can do homework if they wish, have a tasty, healthy snack, plus enjoy rich play experiences which are guided by Playboard NI child-play experts. They can kick off their shoes, wear their own clothes and have a say in the activities on offer. This includes art + crafts, role-play and drama, Fun Fitness and Gymnastics, Outdoor play, sports, cookery, Lego and much more.

Costs are very competitive at £4 per hr with just £3 per sibling. Ask the office for a registration form to book a regular spot or just use the service on an ad hoc basis.

Service available usually up to 5.00pm but can extend to 6.00pm with sufficient demand.
