St Matthew's: Crystal Kids Before/After School Club (term time only) & Easter/Summer Holiday Club
Crystal Kids - our before/after school club (term time only) and Easter/Summer holiday provision — is an extremely popular and invaluable service for many parents and carers of children who attend St Matthew’s. The children are cared for by familiar, dedicated and experienced staff. The staff work under the same flag of gentle ethos and attitude as the school and provide a very caring, nurturing and enriching environment. The children are offered a selection of activities which range from relaxed to stimulating.
The number of Crystal Kids’ sessions are limited due to staffing levels and restrictions on numbers for which we can cater.
