 Before and After school Care

Parkwood is able to offer a breakfast club, open to all children from 7:30 until 8:20. Children can attend this provision for a donation each week and will be given a healthy breakfast, including a drink before starting school at 8:45.

Unfortunately Parkwood is not able to offer its own after school care, however we have close links with Elizabeth House, who offer an after school club. Children are collected from school and taken to Elizabeth House Community Centre, 2 Hurlock Street, N5. 

Elizabeth House offers a safe, friendly and fun environment for children to play, for arts and crafts activities, games and relax after school. On arrival, the children receive a light snack, and drinks are available throughout the session. Activities consist of a variety of arts and crafts, sports and games. We also have a computer suite which is really popular with the children.
