Time Out Breakfast & Afterschool Club

Introduction

Welcome to Timeout Afterschool and Breakfast Club. Our club is an Ofsted Registered Charity and open to all children who attend Manland school. We are a place where your child(ren) can play, create, learn, socialise and most importantly, eat, drink and laugh.

Our club is managed by qualified staff, some fantastic local student helpers and a trust of parents whose children attend Manland school. We operate a safe recruitment policy within Timeout Club and all members of staff will have completed our security checks and will hold enhanced DBS certificates. Our staff provide a safe and happy environment for your child(ren) before and after school.
