Out of school care and playschemes

Fun and creative ways to learn

School care and playschemes help children learn new skills, gain experiences and develop enthusiasm and confidence. As well as keeping children busy and entertained, activities also offer great developmental benefits that will help them academically and socially.

Various out of school providers you may come across are:

Out of school and holiday play scheme providers can assist for the few hours before and after school and also during school holidays. Out of school providers can offer somewhere safe for a few hours outside of the normal school times, during half-terms and other school breaks. Your child can take part in fun activities and socialise with other children at times to fit around your work and study commitments.

In Enfield, out of school and holiday play scheme providers are run by private companies.

Out of school clubs and holiday play schemes that care for under 8’s should be registered and inspected by Ofsted.

You may find that some schemes are run in a different location to the school your child attends. Arrangements may need to be made so your child can be taken from their school to the out of school setting.
