Afterschool Care

Kidszone operates afterschool care for St Paul's Primary School, Withington. We collect the children from school and walk them round to our afterschool premises, details below.

Children are given a tasty, healthy snack and water to drink is available throughout the session. A range of indoor and outdoor play activities are offered, we have weekly themes for activities and we plan these in consultation with the children. We also have a quiet room for reading and doing homework. See our Facebook page for more images and details of our weekly activities.

We have a manager, deputy manager and up to 6 playworkers at each session and at least 50% of our staff hold playwork or teaching qualifications. We are Ofsted registered and inspected and are very proud to have acheived an Outstanding grade at our 2016 inspection and 'Met' (the highest grade) under the new inspecition system at our last inspection in Dec 2019.
