About Aberlady Afterschool Club

Aberlady afterschool club is situated within the community hall of the village of Aberlady.  Breakfast Club is held daily within Aberlady Primary School.  Our aim is to include all children within the play opportunities and experiences we provide and will adapt our facilities accordingly to ensure inclusion of all children using the service.

We at Aberlady offer the following play opportunities:

Access to outdoor play areas and large hall, Healthy breakfast and snacks, safe and secure environment, toilet, handwashing and tooth brushing facilities, a wide range of activities and games, quiet areas, wide range of equipment and apparatus, a warm friendly home from home feel and provide every child and service user with a “Magical Experience”.

ELOSCN’S PRIDE values are used in all our settings, the children, staff and all stakeholders are aware of our Values and the children enjoy praising one another when they receive one of our PRIDE stickers.

P  –  Protect themselves and each other

R  –  Respect each other, staff and children

I  –  Inspire, look after and encourage each other

D  –  Develop by giving confidence, self-belief, respect, as you can see the PRIDE in practice rolls in to each other giving every child a “Magical Experience”

E  –  Experience which we endeavour to provide a magical experience every day

We provide a safe and stimulating care environment for children from Primary 1 to S1 before and after school on a daily basis and collect the children from Aberlady Primary School.  We provide healthy breakfast and snack options for the children, operating on a “nut free” policy, and cater for a number of different dietary needs if required.
