WE PROVIDE A PICK UP SERVICE FROM
ST MARY’S RC PRIMARY SCHOOL (EAST LONDON STREET), LEITH WALK PRIMARY SCHOOL AND ABBEYHILL PRIMARY SCHOOL
We are registered with The Care Inspectorate and SSSC and all staff are
vetted through Disclosure Scotland. Safety is our highest priority but the emphasis is on
free play and fun! A copy of all policies and procedures is available upon request.
Please read our Play Policy which explains what we aim to provide for your child.
Both managers are qualified with a PDA Childhood Practice level 9 qualification.
Playworker Katrina holds the Playwork Level 3 qualification and Playworker Audrey holds the
Modern Apprenticeship Social Services Children and Young People Award, Level 3.
All staff access relevant 1 day training courses regularly as part of the SSSC Post-
Registration Training and Learning requirements and further learning is encouraged through
accessing relevant information provided by play organisations.
Children are picked up in the playground and escorted to the club which is based at Abbeyhill Baptist Church.
Here we use the hall for sports and big group games or
just playing games with friends. We also have a quiet room where we offer weekly arts and craft
projects as well providing the space for children to choose quieter activities such as making junk art,
reading, drawing, lego or relaxing in the cosy corner. We are lucky to have Montgomery Street Park right on our doorstep
and visit the park daily (weather permitting).
There are plenty of play opportunities for all children including sports, big group games, arts and crafts, dressing up and
role play and toys such as dolls, figures, fort and cars as well as loose parts etc. We believe that providing the support,
space and resources to spend unstructured and undirected time playing whatever they choose with friends after a structured day
at school is important free time for all children. A light, healthy snack e.g. crackers, breadsticks and cheese, sandwiches,
a variety of fruit and milk or water is provided. We can accommodate any dietary requirements or preferences.
Our sessions run from school pick up until 6pm on week days. The fees are £14 Mon-Thurs and £22 on Fridays. This is reduced for siblings to £8 Mon-Thurs
and £10 on Fridays and to £7 and £8 for third or more siblings. An annual registration fee of £10 per family
is also charged.
Payments are by monthly standing order in advance and payment details are issued
