Out of school service is run especially for school going
children of working parents. They are open before and after
school hours. Some are also open during school holidays.
These nurseries are registered with the council and their
work and place are regularly inspected.
There are different types of such services like breakfast clubs, after school clubs, holiday playschemes etc.
The benefits are obvious. If you are a working parent of
school going chil(ren), it is important that you have a
facility whereby your child(ren) can be looked after in a
professional manner ouside school hours.
This arrangement is also stimulating for the child who gets to enjoy the company of other children.
Contact your local council for more information.
