Before and After School Childcare

We are fortunate to have excellent before and after school provision, in the form of our on-site wraparound care provided by the YMCA and the services of a number of registered childminders in the local area. For information on the latter, see the following list:  Local Childminders.

The YMCA provides a safe and fun environment for children at Middleton to prepare for and unwind from the school day. We're very lucky to have use of the Community Room at school, as well as access to the hall and school grounds for both indoor and outdoor play. The facility is early years registered and has a 'Good' rating from Ofsted, with well qualified and trained staff. For the latest inspection report, click here:

Childcare is available both before and after school, as well as during some holidays.

  • Before School Club; this is open every school day from 7.45am until the start of school at 8.45am. We set children up for the day with a combination of a healthy breakfast and fun activities to get their brains and bodies ready for school! The cost is £3.75 per day if pre-booked, £4.50 for a drop-in session.
  • After School Club: this is open every school day from the end of school (3.15pm) until 5.45pm. Children are offered healthy snacks and can take part in a variety of games and activities, encouraging experiential learning and team building. We can also support children with their homework and reading. The cost is £8.50 if pre-booked, £11.63 for a drop-in session.

 All children at Middleton are welcome to register and use the facility. Just go to to create an account and choose the sessions you require.
