After-school care during school holidays and occasional days off school
The KinderRijk after-school care centres are open during school holidays from 8.15 am to 6.30 pm except on those dates given above.
If a school is closed due to in-service training or occasional holidays, the after-school care is open all day. We refer to this as additional opening times, and you need to sign your child up or out in advance for these days. If a child is signed out for one of these days, it means a place becomes available for another child to attend for an extra day.
Summer holidays at the After-school care
All centres are generally open during the first three weeks and the last week of the school summer holidays. It may be that centres work together during this period. A number of after-school care centres are closed during the fourth and fifth weeks of the summer holidays. There will however be some centres in the immediate area that are open, so that children and staff from different centres come together in one place – and there’s always a peppy holiday programme in place.
