Out of School Care Glasgow
Calderwood After School and Holiday Club opened its doors in 2009. We are a privately owned organisation operating from the safe confines of Calderwood Primary School. The club has a good relationship with all the school staff, parents, the parent council and the wider community.
On our first day, we had two children. At the end of our first week, our numbers grew to four. By the following month, our numbers swelled to fourteen. Today, we are running to capacity so we must be doing something right!
Most of the children who attend our club come to us through personal recommendation. Again, we must be doing something right. We are a small club but we pride ourselves in providing a first class customer service. When a child cries and refuses to go home at home time, that is testimonial in itself. This happens a lot in our club – after school and the holiday club.
I really enjoy coming to ASC! My favourite thing to do is arts and crafts because there is a great selection of resources to choose from. There is always something to do!

Calderwood After School and Holiday Club provides fun and stimulating care for children before, after school and during holiday time in a safe and friendly environment managed by professional staff.
We promote outdoor play, and we are very fortunate to be based in a location where there is a great playground, football pitch, basketball court, trim-trail and a sensory garden. There is also a large outdoor area where our children play and build dens. During the holidays, our holiday club venture to the great outdoors. The children absolutely love going out and playing in the woods. As a team, we support children to enjoy and appreciate the natural environment. On a typical day, we equip ourselves with our outdoor kit. Equipment such as: tent (for play or rest), ropes to make swings / rope bridges, hammock (for lazying about) and water. We use woodland areas that are near public facilities. As we continue to promote outdoor play, some of our staff will shortly be doing a qualification with the Forest School. This, we believe, will enable us to offer an even more exciting experience for our children.
We like parties and take every opportunity to have a party. We don’t see why parties should only be for special occasions. At Calderwood After School and Holiday Club, it’s all about having loads of fun.
