The Zone Afterschools Club was established in 2009 when The Ark first opened its doors, however such was its popularity that in 2012 we set about building a separate unit complete with its own facilities and outdoor space. The Zone is a ‘cool’ space for children to hang out with their friends after school, they can relax after their school day in a safe environment, chill out, socialise or take part in a wide range of activities of their choice. The Zone has its own large, secure garden with something for everyone, big open spaces for team activities, a specially designed trim trail for those who still have energy to burn after school and a log hut for our adventurers!
We know that school hours don’t always suit busy parents who are trying to juggle work with a commute and the school run, we provide you with one point for drop-off and collection and we’ll arrange the rest! We open from 7.30am until 6.30pm, we offer Breakfast Club and drop-off and collection to and from most of the local schools. We’ll also provide a snack when children arrive at the club from school as well as a light, nutritious tea so, if you need to pick-up a bit later, you don’t need to worry about missing mealtimes.
