Places are open to children attending Stanley and St James's Schools.

We collect the children ath the end of the school day.

There are many activities and games to enjoy either indoors or outside in our lovely large garden. We also provide a full cooked tea. A great place to relax and have fun after a day at school.

Now open to 6:30pm when booked in advance!

Places can be offered to similar age children from other schools providing these children are brought to Scamps, as we can only collect from Stanley and St James's Schools at present.
