We have had an After School Club at Elizabeth House for over 15 years now. We offer a safe, friendly and fun environment for children to play, for arts and crafts activities, games and relax after school.

We collect children from Gillespie Primary School and escort them safely to the club. Children from other schools in the local area can make their own way here or if there are more families from a local school wanting to use our services, please contact our childcare manager.

On arrival, the children receive a healthy snack, and drinks are available throughout the session. Activities consist of a variety of arts and crafts, sports and games. We also have a computer suite which is really popular with the children.

Our staff are experienced and qualified. They ensure each child is looked after and has fun at Elizabeth House.
