About us

This organisation was set up in 1990 by two parents from the local community who felt there was a need for childcare to accommodate school children. In 2006, the organisation became a non-profit making Limited Company and continues to be a very busy service which provides a happy, safe and stimulating environment for children before and after school. This organisation strives to provide equal learning opportunities to suit the children’s individual and group needs. It is vital that all service users have confidence in the support we provide for their families.
Stonehaven After School Club is registered for up to 60 children daily. We are open 7.30 – 9 am and 2.30 – 6pm during term time and that we offer a holiday club for all in-service days, Easter Holidays, Summer and October as well as offering care on school closure days.
In order to achieve the above, the club has the following objectives;
  • The service will be provided through child centred approach, respecting the individual needs of each service user.
  • Children as well as their parents or guardians will be encouraged to participate in the club decision making with regard to management, planning, snacks and the day-to-day running of the service.
  • Staff will be suitably qualified and experienced in various aspects of childcare and play. Training is an ongoing feature of the service.
  • The equipment and toys provided will be well maintained and renewed when necessary, enabling children to access a variety of up to date play and learning opportunities.
  • The club will fully utilise local community resources and regularly access opportunities to visit other facilities, as part of the ongoing programme of education and learning experiences for children.
  • The club will adhere to the Health and Safety Policies in place.
  • The service shall be subject to the Regulation of Care as regulated and monitored by the Scottish Care Inspectorate.
