Services to you

Our Offering

If your school is looking at their wraparound provision, either replacing existing provision or setting up brand new provision, we would love to talk to you to see how we can support your school, families and children.

We offer outstanding, quality childcare, and are one of the first successful providers to work with local authorities to provide out of school childcare for local schools. We have continued to remain as a leading provider and are one of the few providers who have maintained their 100% Ofsted record since opening in 2002. We are also one of the few providers that have continued to provide services for children aged from 3 years old meaning that we can service the full school age range from 3 years – 11 years.

Nearly all our current venues have been based on word of mouth, or recommendations where schools have approached us to provide the quality childcare for their parents and children.

Our Service to you

We pride ourselves on being more than just a service to the schools and families that we support. We understand the practical and logistical demands and challenges that schools face and we are here to support through the various different services that we can provide.  All of our clubs are unique and so our highly experienced, qualified and dedicated team will work with your school to tailor our provision to meet your needs and the needs of your families and school community.

Why Us

  • Flexible service offering
  • From managing the service for one club to managing all clubs directly as The Gap Club or as a back-office service managing the childcare as part of the School
  • Managing the entire or part of the process from booking and invoicing to recruiting staff and performing suitability checks, thus giving your school a “hassle free”, steady and stable revenue stream through the provision of high quality wraparound childcare.

Our clubs provide our children with many different activities and zones from:

  • role play, homework areas and large junk modelling and construction zones.

We also fill the gap between lunch and dinner by providing a healthy balanced snack every day which is made up of fruit, vegetables and a form of carbohydrate such as flatbreads, pasta, wraps or beans on toast. Our snack time is a key part of our daily routine and provides a social occasion for the children and staff to share news, interests and as well as many other interesting conversations. As our snack is as independent for the children as possible to support the development of their life skills such as making their own choices, spreading, cutting and even washing up!
