Out of school (wraparound) childcare

Wraparound childcare is before and after-school childcare for primary school-aged children aged 5-11 years old in England during term time. This includes breakfast clubs and regular after-school provision until 6pm or later.

The care is aimed at helping parents access more childcare and work the hours they want to. It should be available every school day outside of regular school hours.

From September 2024, parents can expect to see an increase in the number of wraparound childcare places available across the country.

Wraparound care eligibility

All parents in England with primary school-aged children will be able to access wraparound care in their local area.

The fees will be set by providers. Parents eligible for Tax-Free Childcare or Universal Credit Childcare will be able to use the support to help pay for wraparound care.

When contacting out of school providers check to see if they are registered with Ofsted which means that you can apply for help with childcare costs (external link).
