Welcome to The Afterschool Club Ltd. We have been providing flexible, good quality, reliable and affordable childcare for children in and around the Rickmansworth, Mill End and Croxley Green areas since 1997. We provide an answer to your childcare needs all round the year. During term-times our breakfast club is open from 7.15 am and our after school clubs run until 6.30 pm. During the school holidays we open at 7.45 am for breakfast and are open all day until 6.00 pm.  Our staff are qualified in playwork and understand the importance of play and offering different play opportunities.


Following a very successful Easter, the Holiday Club is next open for the Summer Half-term Holiday from Tuesday 1st to Friday 4th June. Our opening hours are 7.45 am until 6.00 pm. Due to the current restrictions numbers are limited, so please book now!

We are using both halls and our two outside spaces.  The two marquees are up again as they were last summer, with all sorts of outdoor toys, trampolines, slides, bikes and other equipment just waiting to be played on!


Now that the schools have returned we are running as usual  from 3.15 to 6.30.  Both indoor and outdoor space is being used.

The marquees are back up so that we can use our amazing outside space to the full.  This is such a great experience for the children, particularly when they have been in the classroom all day.  Enrolment and bookings are so easy using our online system.  I bet if your child came to us they would never want to go anywhere else again!


Now that the schools have returned we are running as usual  from 3.15 to 6.30.  The Community Centre has given us use of their garden as we can’t go to the park at the moment.  This is a lovely secure private space for the children to play in after school.  We will utilising this space as much as possible to give the children a happy, positive experience after a day in the classroom.

Why not give us a try and see what your children think!

The AfterSchool Club provide flexible bookings for working parents.  We offer different end times so you are charged less when the children are not with us for the full session.  We are open until 6.30 every day.

Our excellent staff are all used to working in the present circumstances.  Our routines are tried and tested and work!  Join us and see why we are the original and best !

The Afterschool Club Ltd is so important for the children to develop their social skills outside of a school environment.  We are at present working in “bubbles” and this will continue until the virus is back under control.  This has worked very well for the autumn  term and we have ensured the children have plenty to do and are happily occupied whist spending time with us.  It is also very important for children to have a change of venue at the end of the day.  They are all then able to start a fresh without any of the problems at school staying with them.

It is simple to enrol your children through our online booking system. There is no charge and the process takes just a few minutes to complete.

The Afterschool Club was started in the summer of 1997 by Debby Tindall, after experiencing all the problems of juggling a career and looking after her school aged children. The Afterschool Club combines complete flexibility with the ability to book only the time you require, with reasonable costs.  We have different charge for 4.30, 5.00, 5.30, 6.00 and 6.30 pickups.

For the children it’s like having friends round to play but we do the tidying up!

We now have Afterschool Clubs in Mill End Community Centre and Croxley Community Centre so that your child’s care is local to your home.  We also run a Breakfast Club from 7.15 am at Mill End Community  Centre.  Both venues have easy parking for collecting/dropping your child, saving you precious time.

We are open every week of the year except for a few days over Christmas. During the school term our Breakfast Club at Mill End open at 7.15 am and our After School Clubs close at 6.30 pm. These clubs are open to children from the following schools:  

When the schools are closed The Holiday Club at Mill End Community Centre is open from 7.45 am until 6.00 pm every school holiday for children from any school although priority is given to children who currently attend The Afterschool Club.  The Holiday Club is led by a Level 3 Playworker who is qualified to run a “play setting” and understands the importance of facilitating play.  In the summer months we have a field with two marquees and loads of outside equipment including slides, trampolines, bikes, scooters, seasaws, slides, the list is endless!  Last summer we spent most of our time outside due to the virus.  The positive of this terrible time is that children had such a good time outside and all of them said how much they preferred this environment.  Therefore we plan on continuing with this even once the vaccine is rolled out.  Once again we are totally flexible on bookings.  You pick and choose which sessions you need.  We offer extended days from 7.45 am to 6.00 pm, full days 8.30am to 5.30pm, half days any 4 hours or longer than half a day but less than a full day.  We employ staff from The Afterschool Club so they are all familiar to the children and offer continuity of care and variety for the children throughout the day.  We only employ people who can demonstrate a true desire to work with children.

The service is designed to be “parent friendly” to fit in with your life style either as a working parent or as a parent who wants a break. Our online system is so easy to use to make, amend or change bookings when convenient to you.  We accept emergency bookings by text or email. Invoices are sent out weekly by email and you can pay with childcare vouchers, bank-to-bank transfers, or cash.

The AfterSchool Club is registered with OFSTED. Both  settings have a ‘Good’ rating in all areas.

Our staff receive relevant training in playwork.  Our senior staff have NVQ3s and other staff have regular training in child protection, food hygiene, prevent and FGM.

The staff for the Holiday Club are drawn from the two after school settings and usually work on a half day basis. Most of the children already know the staff, enabling us to balance continuity of care with variety for the children throughout the day.

We welcome visitors although at present you can only observe from the windows or doors as we are doing everything we can to protect our children and staff from the virus
