Breakfast Club and After School Club

Please click here for a registration form.

At Rowland Hill Nursery School & children’s centre we run a breakfast club and afterschool club.

Breakfast club and after school club is staffed by our own school staff so the children already know them well from working with them in school.

Breakfast Club

Breakfast club runs from 8am-8.30am each morning with a healthy nutritional balance; cereal, toast, with a glass of milk or water.

Breakfast club is just one important element of our child care provision. The club enables parents/carers to drop off their children between 8.00am and 8.30am every day. Drop them at 8am and get off to work or college!

There is a fee of £3 per day payable one week in advance. You can use the club on selected days each week. Places are limited – if you would like to reserve a space please complete an application form available here or from the school office.

After School Club

After School Club runs from 3.30pm-6pm every day with a healthy snack and fun activities. Places are limited and therefore on a first come first served basis.

This means that for every £8 you pay in childcare fees, the government will pay £2 towards your fees up to a total of £2,000.

You may also qualify for Tax Credits where you can get back 70% of your weekly childcare costs.
