Have broken a bone in my foot, so ds is going to afterschool club 3 times this week. It is £8 per session. Just as well my neighbour will start picking him up from next week as I cannot afford that every day!

£2 for breakfast club
£7.50 for afterschool club

I think it's a bargain tbh

afterschool club is from 3.20pm to 6pm, there is no way any other chilcare would charge as little as that surely

Mine is £9 from 3.15-6.15...and a meal thrown in - I think its quite good value really at £3 per hour.

Ours is about £8.50 I think ( I get a small employer related discount and also a small second child discount) That is for 2 hours and 40 minutes with tea included. Like the other posters I think that's pretty good!

Breakfast is £4.00

After school £4-£6.50 depending on when they're picked up.

£2 for breakfast to me is brilliant because it's not just the cost of all the food they get but also an hours childcare

No idea about after school club, but our breakfast club (Glasgow) is free!

<<<moves to Glasgow>>>

Och I am probably living in the dark ages, I thought it was only about £5 but can see who unrealistic that would be.

The school ds is going to in September free after school club till 6pm.

I'm in Glasgow, so like Weegiemum, the breakfast club (state schools) is free - open from 8.15, decanted into the playground (which is supervised by the janitor) at 8.45.

Out of School Club (3.15 to 5.45) is £45/week and includes a snack.

The school ds1 starts at in sept is £2 breakfast club and £8 after school club till 6. Both include activites and food.
Breakfast however you can turn up whatever days you like no advance booking, its run by the school staff; whereas after school club is run by a private provider with staff who come onto the premises at 3.30. For that you have to pay a month in advance for your specified days whether you use them or not - and if you need extra days sometimes thats not available unless you have booked in advance, and you can't swap your days around.
We are in east lancs btw.
Other schools in our area do free breakfast or after school clubs if they are in areas attracting government grant money.

Breakfast 50p for us and £2 if you do the whole week with concessions for more than one child. V. good value! Eat as much as you like fruit, cereal, toasted product, fruit juice, hot choc.

They do have Terry Wogan on though, it does have its downside!

We are lucky with the Breakfast Club that Glasgow City Council offers: I don't mind paying for that from our Council Tax. They have done research that shows that it helps with concentration during the day. For the poorer kids it ensures that they get a good start to the day and for the working parents, it helps by letting them get off earlier.

Our out-of-school club also only costs £55 during the school holidays (8.15 to 5.45, Mon to Fri). Includes all the excursions (trips to Loch Lomond, the local parks, mini zoo visiting and even cinema trips) as well and an afternoon snack but you do need to send in a packed lunch.
