Childcare at the end of the school day

Bridging the gap between the end of school and the end of the working day is often a challenge. YMCA East London provides an affordable and reliable After School Club service within local primary schools across the Boroughs of Waltham Forest and Redbridge. We accept Childcare Vouchers from a number of providers.

Our After School Clubs run from the end of the school day until 5.30/6.00pm, depending on the school. All our staff are fully qualified, and are encouraged to pursue further training and development programmes to ensure that the service we deliver is the best – and that the After School Clubs offer a safe and welcoming environment.

Our Clubs have both indoor and outdoor facilities with lots of space to let off steam after school or chill out with school friends. We provide a wide range of activities on a daily basis, as well as a variety of healthy snacks which are in line with The School Food Plan Alliance Standards.
