Explorers' Afterschool Club

Activites and fun for children aged 4-12 years

**COVID-19 Update**

Explorers Afterschool will re-open at the beginning of the new school year as usual. We plan to run our services alongside each school's calendar. Explorers' calendar is in the Parent Information Pack.

We will be operating within the Government's guidelines and in tandem with school requirements. 

We will close at 18.00 every day for the forseeable future to facilitate extra cleaning.
