We have experience within our team

Between us, our staff collectively have over 75 years of childcare experience. We know a thing or two about children and childcare.

Our Manager has been operating Trinity After School Club for over 15 years and is supported by a tremendous team, who jointly supply a superb level of care and support to the children and parents alike.

Trinity After School Club, set up in 1996, has built a strong and well known reputation as an excellent provider of choice, of which we are very proud. But we don’t rest on our laurels. Staff are continually studying and working towards new qualifications, to keep abreast of the latest thinking in childcare and to seek ways to improve.

Aims

The aim of both Trinity & Victoria After School Clubs is to provide:

  • a secure environment for children whose parents require high quality but affordable childcare
  • children with a varied and stimulating programme of activities which is responsive to the interests of each child, allowing for periods of quiet and an opportunity to do homework

The management committee

The management committee is made up of volunteer parents who oversee the running of Trinity After School Club. All aspects of running the club are taken extremely seriously by the committee to ensure only the highest standard of childcare is provided.

The committee sets all the rules and regulations of the club and the fees made, including the agreement of policies and procedures such as staff employment; discipline; open access; hygiene; health and safety; confidentiality; child protection and complaints. All policies and procedures are available for inspection on request and our main policies can be downloaded here.

Both Clubs are:

  • registered by SCSWIS and inspected on an annual basis
  • insured for Employer and Public Liability
  • a member of the Scottish Out of School Care Network
