Out of School Childcare - Play Aloud St Andrew's

Play Aloud is privately run and has been enjoying a successful partnership with St Andrew's School and Nursery since September 2013. We are registered with Ofsted as an Early Years Setting and on the Childcare Register. In our inspection in 2014 we were graded 'Good' with strong practise in every area of our provision. Our Ofsted reg number is EY468316.

Play Aloud is open from 7.30am until 6.30pm all year-round. In term-time we provide before and after school care: seeing children safely into and picking up from St Andrews School and the afternoon nursery session. Every week we offer activities and resources based on a special theme. We follow the EYFS for our younger children and enjoy close working relationships with parents and the Nursery to support your child's development and happiness. 

In school holidays we are open all day, every day from 7.30am until 6.30pm providing childcare and exciting activities and specialist workshops. We are open all day during term time to provide wrap around care for children who attend the afternoon Nursery session.

Play Aloud offers healthy breakfasts, snacks and evening meals. Activities and resources include: crafts, sports, board games, computer games, books, baking, toys, role-play, chill-out area, art, puzzles, music, outings, homework help and all kinds of fun based on the children’s interests.

Play Aloud employs Play Leaders of the highest quality who truly love working with children and we operate excellent child:play-leader ratios. Regular places and/or occasional hours are available. You can choose the days and times that suit your family. Book your child in every day or just for a few hours sometimes, it’s up to you, it’s your childcare provision shaped around your family’s needs.
