The Hatch Warren After School Club (ASC) is registered with Ofsted (EY491834). 

Based at the Community Centre, in the heart of Hatch Warren, in close proximity to both St Mark's and Hatch Warren Schools. ASC use the lounge area for eating and creative/craft activities and also the Warren youth club for further activities such as toys, books, games, TV with Wii and PS2 and a quiet time area with comfy beanbags to relax on. We have access to the main hall on certain days and also the outside playing fields, patio and sports courts for physical activities such as basketball, hooping and ball games.

The ASC team, Odette (ASC Manager), Jo, Sarah, Louise, Hilary, Annamarie, Kelly, Melissa, Selina, Charlotte, Gill, and Maggie will collect the children from both St Mark's and Hatch Warren Junior/Infants Schools and walk them back to the community centre and provide play and care services until 6pm.

All staff are trained and qualified in childcare for all age ranges and they will be encouraged to continue training to enhance their skills. All staff are DBS certified and there will always be at least one trained first aider on site at all times.

The service will cost £11.95 per day per child and is available 5 days a week during term time. The cost includes a hot home-cooked light meal with drink, prepared by our Chef. Payment can be made via cash, cheque, internet banking or childcare vouchers.
