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/or relax after the school day. Morning provision is on-site in our Community Room; after school care is split between this room and space hired at the Community Centre located nearby on Harrow Road. There is also access to the school grounds for outdoor play. The facility is early years registered and has a 'Good' rating from Ofsted, with well qualified and trained staff.

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! 
  • 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. 

 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.
