After School Club

In 2019 Ofsted rated Tarner Community Project (Children’s Project) as a ‘good’ childcare provider. We are extremely proud of the safe, exceptional quality and affordable out-of-school play we provide for children aged 4-11 years.

Since 1996 we have been providing children with a wide range of exciting, stimulating and educational play in a wonderful park setting. The children are encouraged to make full use of the park and its facilities all year round. This magical outdoor space is where they make friends, develop new skills and most importantly, have loads of fun!

Tarner Community Project provides affordable and secure out-of-school play provision of an outstanding quality for children aged 4-11 years. For over 18 years we have been providing children with exciting, creative and stimulating play in a wonderful park setting. Emphasis is on learning through play and having fun. Children learn skills and are free to choose from a wide variety of activities, and they often make life-long friendships here. Read our glowing testimonials for more.
