Kids Reading Outdoor

good quality childcare, great value for money 
before and after school, at half terms and in the holidays

Who can attend?

During the holidays and half term, we welcome anyone aged 4-14, not just Poppy Road pupils.

During term time, we mostly cater for Poppy Road pupils, as we do not currently offer a school pick-up/drop off service.

What ages?

Anyone aged 4-14 years. We have a wide range of activities suitable  for this age range. Indoor play, outdoor play, free play, day trips, electronics, workshops.

Special Needs?

Yes!  We have several members of staff who are qualified to care for children with special needs, on a one to one basis if necessary.  Please call to discuss your requirements.

"My daughter loves the activity options available to her and interacts with the staff confidently.  They are approachable and friendly with everyone."
