Alsorts provides childcare before and after school during term-time and full days in the holidays. We are open from 7.45am until 9am and provide a breakfast (usually toast and cereal) for the children before going to school. We provide a variety of healthy snacks for the children when they come in after school and close at 6pm.

We have two Huts (4 rooms), our own garden area and access to the school playing fields, playground and sports hall. During term-time, Hut 1 is used by P1-P3 children and Hut 2 for P4-P7 children. There is a wide variety of resources for the children to access, ranging from art/craft materials, Wii, pool, table tennis and lots more. All children access all the rooms during school holidays.

We have a core staff team consisting of a Manager, Assistant Manager,  One Senior Playworker and three playworkers. We also have a pool of sessional staff. All core staff are trained in First Aid and Food Hygiene and participate in regular staff development and training sessions. Core staff are registered with the SSSC and are qualified to the required standard.

Alsorts was established in 1994 and has charitable status and is managed by a voluntary management committee made up of parents using the facility.
Currently, the fee structure is:-

Term Time

Alsorts provides transport to and from St Ninians primary, Bannockburn primary and St Mary’s during term-time and this incurs an additional cost of £1.50 per journey. Please contact a member of Alsorts staff for further details.

Alsorts also operates a cancellation policy. A fee will be applied if a booking is cancelled, and the amount will be determined by the amount of notice given. The policy is enclosed.

Children must be brought into and collected by a responsible adult over the age of 16 years. Please let us know if your child is absent from school or if someone else is going to collect them on your behalf.
