Text reads "The Jolly Steppers" With image of 5 cartoon pirate children below.

Our Out-of-School Club, The Jolly Steppers, works in partnership with our independent school, Green Meadow Independent Primary School and other local schools to provide a high quality childcare service for children and families after school. We are a fully inclusive setting, registered for children aged 4–11 years. We collect children from the following schools:

  • Green Meadow Independent Primary School
  • Lowton West Primary School
  • Lowton Junior and Infant Primary School
  • St Lukes CE Primary School
  • St Catherine of Sienna Primary School

We also offer a breakfast club from 7:15am for the following schools:

  • Green Meadow Independent Primary School
  • Lowton West
  • Lowton Junior and Infant
  • St Catherine of Sienna Primary School

The Jolly Steppers Out-of-School Club is a play environment and provides exciting and stimulating activities for all ages. We will collect your child from the above schools using either a walking bus system or on our mini bus and bring them back to the club. They’re usually ready for a drink and something to eat after a busy day at school so we provide a healthy home cooked tea for the children, with fruit and a pudding for dessert, ensuring that there are plenty of healthy options on offer. We will then keep the children happily entertained with lots of different activities, such as table-hockey, board games, arts and crafts, and outdoor play (they always find some energy from somewhere!). We also plan regular themed activities and special events. If your child would rather get on with their homework, we make sure they have a quiet spot and appropriate support.

During school holidays we operate full day care for families who need childcare over these periods, as we understand that school holidays can be a real puzzle, but it’s one we’ve solved. Our Holiday Club provides the support you need and gives children the chance to take part in a range of exciting programmes and new experiences, such as creative workshops, games, sports, ceramics, drama, dance, art, cookery, photography and media, music and culturally themed weeks. Instead of being cooped up at home with grown-ups, they’ll be with children similar to their own age, forging the kind of important friendships that can last a lifetime.

We're based in a separate building to the nursery, which gives them complete independence from the little ones, so they can relax in their own space and play in their own outside play area which contains a state of the art climbing frame including a climbing wall, rope bridge, slides, rope ladder, tyre swing etc. All of this is surrounded by safety flooring.
