What our parent's say
"Karen and the team at little K’s have provided fantastic wrap around care for my 4 children, starting in 2011 and continuing to date. The team at Little K’s is well established and provides the continuity and stability which make the kids feel safe and supported whilst they are at the club.
The children are collected directly from school, a short walk to the children’s centre where they play games and have great opportunities to interact with children they wouldn’t normally encounter during the school day. As a result, my kids have built really great relationships with others from different year groups and they very much enjoy their time at the club.
When my kids want to take part in after school activities, Karen is flexible and able to accommodate later pick up times so they don’t miss out on anything the school has to offer.
During warmer times the kids are always outdoors making the most of the fresh air. I couldn’t recommend Little K’s more if you are looking for a reliable, safe, enjoyable after school club."

"If you ask our boy what he likes about Little K's...It's a great place to play fun games, make new friends and the food is amazing.
He's been going for all of his primary school years making new friends of all ages. We are really proud of the staff in the way the adjust during the pandemic, but more importantly how they listen and communicate with us a parents.They really understand the children, uphold great morals and we love the way the staff interact and lead activities with the children. Weather permitting everyone is outside, but the indoor games and activities have also been amazing. There's nothing like you child beaming from ear to ear showing you what they've made at Little K's when you pick them up. It's never any trouble for the staff to accommodate the after school clubs and all the different pick up times. To be honest it must be a logistical headache, but never an issue. If you are thinking of sending your child to Little K's, our boy wants you to know they get ice lollies in the summer!"

Great days at Little K’s
