We have offered Extended Services at St John's with our Breakfast Club and Afterschool Club for many years. We feel it is an essential service to support our families with the demands of their working commitments and offer a safe and secure environment where children can be looked after seamlessly before and after school. As a result, we are committed to providing affordable childcare and our Extended Services are non-profit making. We endeavour to keep our fees at the lowest possible level to provide and maintain a high-quality service.
