Roles in out of school groups

Would you like to work with children aged 3 to 16 years?

Then a career in an out of school club could be the right choice.

There are currently over 40 settings in York providing care for children during out of school hours. This essentially means before school (7.30 - 9.00), after school (2.30 - 6.00) and during school holidays (8.00 – 6.00).
There are a number of reasons children attend an out of school care setting including:

  • Working parents
  • Additional activities
  • Recreation
  • Short breaks (respite)

Most out of school care settings are located within schools, although there are a number of facilities based in other locations including:

  • Community centres
  • Church halls
  • Scout halls
  • Private nurseries

Settings may be run by voluntary organisations, charities, local committees or private enterprise. If you would like to know about out of school clubs in your area contact York Family Information Service.
