Covid-19 and Scamps Closure

Updated 23 March 2020

It is with very heavy hearts that we have decided there is no choice but for Scamps to close completely for the time being. We have been trying to work out a way to stay open for children of key workers and vulnerable children, but it seems it is simply not viable for us to do so. We can only keep going through this difficult time and pay our staff by closing altogether. Things may change and we will continue to keep you updated as and when they do. We will open again as soon as we can.

We would like to take this chance to send our heartfelt thanks to you, the amazing parents who have supported us over so many years and are continuing to do so now. Many of you have paid for next term, even though you have your own troubles to deal with. We appreciate that so much, and the messages of incredible generosity, kindness and support we have received have reduced us to tears. As we said before, please be reassured that if we are not able to open after Easter, any fees you pay will be transferred to the sessions that you book when we do reopen.

If you need to contact us, our phones will be unmanned, so please email enquiries@scampsteddington.co.uk or any of the staff email addresses.

We sincerely hope you will all stay safe and well.

With very best wishes from us all.

Defibrillator Fund


We are raising money for a community defibrillator. As far as we know, there are no other defibrillators locally so this will be a valuable resource for Teddington. Thank you for your support, you can see we are already just over half way! Please donate here or sponsor Dan:

Education through play
Safe, caring and fun!

First class childcare

Scamps were one of the first after-school care providers in the Teddington area, and have provided first class childcare for over two decades. We are now seeing the second generation of many local families.

Highly qualified staff

We are very proud of the commitment, dedication and retention of our highly qualified and experienced staff team. As well as the staff, we have a dedicated group of parents who form the Scamps Board.

Not for profit

Scamps are non-profit making, run entirely for the benefit of our members - so all income after expenses is used to provide the best possible service to you and your family. All parents who use Scamps are members.
