About School’s Out Gloucester

At School’s Out Gloucester we are proud of our family friendly atmosphere. We understand that quality relationships are formed by respecting and treating each child as an individual.

We operate out of the Bay Baptist Church, catering to students from surrounding schools (see list below). Additionally, we have 3 minivans that allow us to drop children to school in the morning and pick children up from school in the afternoons.

During the school term, children attending are aged between 5 and 10 years.  When we feel the 10 year olds are ready for more responsibility, we move them up to our sister School’s Out programme – Club 22, where the children become more independent and contribute more to the day to day running of the programme.

Our staff are carefully chosen and expected to share and teach their talents within the programme.

Schools we service:

  • Bledisloe School
  • Taradale Primary
  • Arthur Millar School
  • Greenmeadows Primary
  • Reignier Catholic School

Before School Care

Our before care service starts at the early time of 6:45am allowing shift workers to get to work by 7am.  We transport children in vans to the schools we service, ensuring they get to school on time.

After School Care

Our after school sessions include afternoon tea and an opportunity for children to complete their homework.  We communicate closely with the school, supporting and reinforcing their values.  A range of activities are on offer including group games, crafts, sports, and baking.

Holiday Programme

We run one of the most popular Holiday programmes in the Hawkes Bay.  It usually follows a theme and includes a couple of trip days per week to local attractions.  The centre-based days are a hive of activity, with children given a range of activities to choose from.  We also understand that children sometimes need to rest and relax so they can go back to school ready to learn.

Drop in and see us at the Bay Baptist Church anytime during operating hours.  Peter and the team welcome your enquiry.
