              Gosforth Park Out of School Club Ltd

 We are a privately run out of school club providing childcare for children aged 3* to 13, based in Gosforth Park First School, Granville Rd, Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne NE3 5JQ

During termtime we take children from Gosforth Park First School, Broadway East First School, St Oswald's RC Primary School and Gosforth East Middle School. During the school holidays we take children from any schools.

We have been running since September 1998 and over this time have grown from providing 16 out of school childcare places to the 110 that we currently provide. Our customers tell us that we provide a highly valued service.

"My son attended for around 5 years until recently. The club has been a friendly, flexible, welcoming service to use and he thoroughly enjoyed his time here! The staff are helpful, approachable and have had the best interests of my son at heart. Would recommend highly." JK, July 2017

"The effort and dedication you all give is certainly appreciated by C and I. I am sure you don't get the thanks each morning and evening from each parent, but please know that as a family we appreciate what you are doing wholeheartedly." JS, September 2012

 

"I'm so glad you guys set up this place - my son's always happy when I pick him up, which is a credit to the carers! You've all certainly helped reduce the working mothers' guilt complex!" SA, March 2013

"The appeal to my children is the welcoming, calm, caring and inclusive nature of the care - it is not just sporty children who will have fun. My youngest son was especially keen to do craft activities sometimes and have sporty activities at other times. Having looked around at other opportunities and sampled a couple of other holiday sports clubs the individuality and attention of the care was much higher at your club."  A response in our post Summer Holiday 2013 survey

The prices for these ad hoc sessions are the same as above. From September 2021 the price will go up and will depend on the school that your child attends and whether you require a 5pm or a 6pm finish.

There is no sibling discount for these bookings.
