St Matthew's Before/After School Club (term time only) & School Holiday Club - Crystal Kids


Crystal Kids 

Crystal Kids - our before/after school club (term time only) and school 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 environment.  The children are offered a selection of activities which range from relaxed to exciting.

The number of Crystal Kids’ sessions are limited due to staffing levels and restrictions on numbers for which we can cater.
