Playmates - Before and After School Club

Welcome to Playmates Funclub!

We have been offering before and after school childcare at Ludworth Primary School since 1991. We also operate during all school holidays with the exception of Christmas. We offer safe, affordable, high-quality childcare to Ludworth pupils, and extend our childcare to children from other schools in the area during the school holidays.

Out of school clubs are registered and inspected by Ofsted and implement the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) for children five years or younger.
Playmates prides itself on childcare given to each child, our inclusion policy ensures that each stay with us is as happy and enjoyable as possible. All the dedicated and friendly staff hold childcare&first aid qualifications. We have a key worker system in force to ensure communication and individual attention.

Holiday Club

During school holidays Playmates offer the children a stimulating and safe place to enjoy their free time. Here they can meet up with old friends and make new ones. We offer a wide range of appropriate activities geared to meet the needs of each child, with lots of choice & opportunity for social interaction. Trips are also organised over this period. All the same activities are on offer during the holidays plus our bouncy castle. The outdoor play areas are excellent and we actively encourage group outdoor games. The children may bring their own bike/roller blades or scooter to encourage exercise. (Safety gear is essential) A packed lunch is necessary each day for the holiday period.
