Saplings is Ashland Primary School's before and after school club.

We are open mornings from 7.45am and our evening sessions run from 3.30pm-6.00pm.

Saplings is a popular choice for parents and carers looking for reliable child care.

We aim to provide a safe environment for the children and all the rooms are well equipped with a range of play equipment. In addition the children are taken by staff to play outside and use the extensive facilities in the main playground. 

We have 2 rooms for Saplings:

Children in nursery, reception and Year 1 and 2 are based in the Provision Room.

Children in Year 3 - 6 are based in the small hall.
