Wrap-Around Care

At Air Balloon, we are fortunate to have Breakfast, After-School and Holiday Club wrap-around care provision – Space Cadets.  Housed in it’s own building, with direct access, through the Space Cadets gate, staff have created a warm friendly environment, catering for all ages.

Breakfast Club

Breakfast Club is held in Space Cadets with entry through the Space Cadets Gate.

Breakfast club is open from 7.30am – 8.45 Monday to Friday (gates close at  8.20am) and places do need to be booked in advance using the Arbor App or Online Portal.  

For details on how to book a place and add funds to your Arbor Account, please read the userguides below:

Arbor Quick Guide – Booking Wrap-Around Care

Introduction to Arbor for Parents and Guardians June 2022

Children who have not been booked a place, using the online system, will not be able to attend.

We charge £2.50 per child per morning session, if your child will be a regular with us the full week will cost £12.50. You can purchase breakfast at an extra cost of £1.00 and will be debited from your Space Cadets Meals Account in Arbor.

Activities include colouring, construction toys, craft table, indoor sports, outside play and use of the ICT suite.

Staff will help to settle any new children coming along on a one to one basis. Reception children are escorted to their classrooms at 8.40am.

After-School Club and Holiday Club

We provide high quality childcare for children attending Air Balloon Hill Primary School. This is a great opportunity for the children to mix together and practice their socialising skills in a warm, friendly and relaxing environment.

Sessions run until 6pm every evening and we are open from 8.30am to 5.30pm during holidays and inset days.

Activities we offer range from arts and crafts, cooking, board games, outdoor sports, team games, table games, den building and many other varieties of creative and challenging play.

Healthy snacks are provided at 4.30pm during After School Club and 10am and 4pm during Holiday Club. Examples included wholemeal rolls with various fillings, cheese and crackers, fruit and yoghurts, and much more.


After School Club (Term Time)

Monday – Friday, 3.15 until 6pm.

£10 per child per session.

Indoor and outdoor play, art activities and a wide range of toys available. Healthy snack provided every day.


Holiday Club (Inservice days and school holidays)

Tuesday to Thursdays 8.30am until 5.30pm.

£30 per child per full day (with a discount for siblings)

£15 per child per half day (8.30am – 1pm or 1.30pm – 5.30pm).

Morning and afternoon snacks provided. Children attending morning or full day sessions will need to bring in a packed lunch. Activities as above plus cooking and more messy stuff!


Late Pick-up Fee

Unfortunately, Space Cadets charge a ‘late pick-up fee’ due to a very small number of parents who continually pick up their children after 6pm (or 1pm/5.30pm in Holiday Club)

There will be a charge of £5 at 6pm and a further £5 for every 10 minutes thereafter.



Telephone or text 07775 220657 for enquiries, registration/booking forms etc. (not between the hours of 6pm Friday evenings until 8am Monday mornings). Or email
