After School Clubs



Reading Borough Council After School Clubs offer childcare for 4 to 11 year olds. Staff collect the children from the local school and walk them to their club. Children from other schools are welcome but parents should make their own travel arrangements.


The club offers free play, group games, arts/crafts, music, dance and drama. Children receive a substantial snack and drink.


Clubs are open from 3:00pm until 6:00pm, Monday to Friday during term time. We also offer a shorter session, which runs for two hours from 3:00pm until 5:00pm. There is no snack for children attending the shorter session.


Each team consists of experienced and qualified staff that meets the national standards for childcare. Qualifications include NVQ’s in play work and/or childcare, food hygiene, safeguarding and paediatric first aid.
