School club

Before and After School Club in Littleover, Derby

In addition to our excellent nursery services, Play & Learn in Derby operate a before and after school club. This long running and extremely popular service offers you a great solution to that work life balance which so many of us struggle with. Our club opens at 7.00am and you can come as late as 6.00pm to collect your children. 

We offer a fantastic range of benefits including:

  • A nutritious and healthy breakfast and afternoon tea, taking into account all allergy and religious dietary requirements.
  • Support with homework, however we do believe that we are here to give children a time to relax and have fun as they have been busy at school all day.
  • Computer facilities
  • A wide variety of toys and activities that your children can interact with
  • A large outdoor area that is suitable for use all year round (weather permitting, of course!)
  • Drop off and pick up from a variety of local schools

School drop off and pick up service

You’ll obviously need your child to be securely and safely escorted to and picked up from school as well. Play & Learn offers this as a standard part of our service and we serve the following schools:
  • St Joseph’s Primary School
  • Bemrose Primary School
  • St Chad’s Infant School
  • Dale Primary School
  • Ridgeway Infant School
  • Gayton Junior School
  • St George’s Primary School
  • Firs Estate Primary School 

Holiday Club

Not everyone has the luxury of taking a holiday when their children do which is why Play & Learn in Derby provide a School Holiday Club. Our opening times remain the same as term time but instead of receiving before and after school services, your children will receive so much more! A healthy breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea, well thought out and themed weekly activities which include trips to local parks, museums and soft play centres off site and science experiments, arts activities and dress up days on site. Our sessions are flexible and varied and we offer a 10% discount for siblings.
