Out of School Club
Our service operates from the halls of Killermont Parish Church on Rannoch Drive, Bearsden G61 2LD. We can have up to 56 children at each out of school club session.
Children are collected from Killermont Primary school each day and we do look after children from other schools.
Due to high demand we are unable to offer flexible provision so ask that children are booked for the same sessions each week to guarantee places being available when you need it.
Early booking is essential and we aim to notify new families of their placement after the Spring holidays, for places starting the next academic year.
As we operate from the church halls, we need to vacate the premises by 6pm to allow other clubs such as Brownies, Guides and Boys Brigade to use the halls; therefore we ask that all children are collected by 5.45pm.
We also run a ‘Breakfast Club’ from 7.30am each morning, when children can have breakfast and play quiet activities before being escorted to school using our ‘Walking Bus’.
The children are actively involved in much of the planning and decision making in the club and their choices and interests are as many and varied as the children. We have use of a large sports hall and two smaller quiet spaces and so can easily accommodate a wide variety of activities at once. Direct access to the local park, means the children can play outdoors whenever possible.
Play is more complicated than it looks and we pride ourselves on providing high quality play experiences, based on the Play Principles. Did you know there are 16 types of play?

On most school holidays and in- service days (with the exception of public holidays), the club is open from 8.00- 5.45pm, and children from many different schools come along.
Holiday clubs include trips (usually chosen by the children), sports and other activities.
The programme for each holiday club is very different because it is designed by the children who are attending.
Holiday clubs have included trips to: the Tall Ship, the Science Centre, the Imax, Kelvingrove, Victoria and Mugdock parks; sporting activities like ice skating at Greenock and ‘Tubing’ at Bearsden Ski Club and swimming; themed days like ‘Star Wars’, ‘Lego’ beach parties and pyjama parties.
