Great and Little Shelford Kids club is an incredibly popular and a very loved part of the school community. Lead by the fantastic Jo, who has been at the club for almost 7 years, we offer a blend of free play and planned activities for all children to get involved in. With a large selection of resources, the rainbow nursery room play space and full access to the large playfield, children love spending their time afterschool or holidays with us.

The After School Club

After School Club operates from the end of the School day to either 4:30pm or 6pm, Key Stage 1 children will be collected from their classrooms by a playworker and key stage 2 children will be expected to make their own way to the after school club (internally through the school).

We provide all children with a light snack around 4pm. Our menu changes regularly and always aware of any diet requirements.

Children who attend an extra circular club at the school will be collected by a playworker and a snack will be offered to them when they arrive at the after school club.

The Holiday Club

The holiday club operates from 8am – 6pm with a full and varied programme of activities and trips. Each week has a theme to it and the activities and outings are based around that theme. This will be emailed out to you around 6 weeks before the start of the holiday for you to book the specific days. For children staying all day, a mid-morning snack and a light afternoon snack is provided. We ask you to provide a pack lunch.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Depending on the size of the club and the day you need to book, we try our best to accommodate any last minute bookings.

    For the Breakfast and Afterschool Club session(s), if less than a months’ notice of cancellation is given, we will unfortunately have to charge for the session(s), after which you will lose the regular booking pattern and should you require it again will need to join our waiting list. If more than a months’ notice is given you will not be charged but will still lose your regular booking pattern and should you require it again will need to join our waiting list. However if you would like to hold onto the regular session, then we will offer to keep this open for a small fee – 50% of the sessions fee. You are free to make a permanent cancellation to the regular session, please note we will then offer this session to another child who is currently on our waiting for a place.

    No. We offer places on a first come first served basis. The only time this is not used is when a child is on the waiting list but are not able to start, we then hold their place until it is needed and then make offers to children next on the list.

    Yes. Most of our breakfast / after school session hold a waiting list. We recommend contacting us at the earliest possibility to register your child and add them to the waiting list for your required days.

    No. To offer parents childcare security we roll sessions over from one academic year to the next. This means that children’s places will continue until we receive notification from parents to change or cancel them.

    No. We do not ask for a deposit.

    No. We do not require a registration fee.

    Each club provides a slightly different menu. Generally for breakfast there is a variety of cereals, toast, yoghurts and fresh fruit with water, milk and fruit juice available to drink. In the after school clubs there is likely to be a variety of vegetables, crackers, breadsticks, meats and cheeses. To drink there is diluting juice and water. Fresh fruit is available continually.

    Yes. We do encourage all parents to visit the after school club before their child starts. This gives parents and children time to meet the Playleaders and Playworkers and ask any questions they may have. It is also a great chance for children to familarise themselves with the layout and see if they already have friends attending.

    Each school with stagger reception start dates slightly differently. When your sessions are confirmed, please provide us with the date you wish your child to start attending the club. This is normally similar dates to when they start school full time.
