Kidszone After School Care 

Kidszone After School Care operates Mon-Fri term time, 3.15-6pm. We collect from St Paul’s CE Primary School and walk the children round to the Scout Hut on Heaton Road.


We offer a range of indoor and outdoor play opportunities for the children and snacks and water are available during the session.

We allocate new places throughout the school year, so please get in touch if you would like a place at Kidszone. We would recommend a visit to us at the Scout Hut where you can see what Kidszone is like, meet the staff and ask any questions. On days when we are full we will keep a waiting list. We recommend that you enquire at the earliest opportunity if you are interested in a place for your child/children. Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis.
