AYCC Creche Facilities & Out of School Care

We offer affordable, high-quality, safe and secure registered childcare for 4 – 14 year olds in and around Bishop Auckland with experienced qualified staff who work around the children’s needs to provide them with a wide range of play and learning opportunities. We are Ofsted registered and fully competent in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and we have an Investors in Children Award. 

Our top priority is for the children to have fun in a safe and secure environment.

Our Out of School Child Care & Creche service was set up in response to requests from parents and carers in the local community. 

During an after-school session, the children are picked up from school by our club minibus, walking bus or car and are brought back to the club where they have a snack and take part in many activities until they are collected by their parents or carers.

In the holidays the children are dropped off and collected by parents or carers and take part in many activities here at the club or on outings during the day.  Every child has a key worker and our activities are always planned around the children’s learning.

The children have choices at our club and are regularly involved with decision making about activities and outings through their own suggestions board. All our staff are fully qualified and have up to date DBS checks, the building has CCTV in the majority of its rooms and we have a security intercom on the door.
