Balfour - Pioneer Childcare

We provide a daily After School Club during term time at Balfour Primary School. The children choose between a selection of fun activities based around sport, games, arts & crafts and free play.
Our Balfour After School Club runs from the spacious Key stage 2 canteen. We also make the most of the outdoor playground areas, to run supervised games that promote collaboration, teamwork and fun!
The children all come together for High Tea, where they choose from a selection of freshly prepared sandwiches, bagels, wraps, vegetable crudités & fresh fruit.

Balfour Holiday Activity Camp offers non-stop fun for children aged 4-11 years old. Every Day children participate in a selection popular team sports, group challenges and art activities. We run from the same familiar space, helping children to settle quickly into their holiday childcare routine. Our experienced team includes qualified teachers, skilled sports coaches and experienced childcare professionals.

With options for booking on a regular or ad-hoc basis – we’re here, as much or as little as you need us.

Meet The Club Manager


Head of Education & Welfare

I absolutely love spending time with children in such an enjoyable and safe environment like Pioneer.

Having worked as a teacher for two years, I am delighted to still work with children in a school environment! More specifically, I love that I get to focus on children’s happiness and well-being, rather than being overwhelmed with targets and data.

After working as an Activity Leader at Pioneer, I am relishing the challenge of managing a staff team and working with them to develop their skills. However, I still like to put on my ‘Activity Leader’ hat and I love to get stuck into activities and having fun with the children.

I am dedicated to creating a safe, nurturing and fun environment for the children at Balfour, and I hope they will enjoy Pioneer Club as much as I do!

If you would like to discuss anything club-related, please call 07795265496 during club opening hours and I will be happy to talk to you.

Our activities

We offer children choice and variety across our range of indoor activities including sport, games and arts & crafts. We enjoy additional access to the playgrounds, field & outdoor areas – meaning we have plenty of room to further extend our range of exciting activities.

We are constantly monitoring and supporting the children, to ensure everyone has been well fed with a variety of options available to keep the children engaged and enjoying themselves whilst in our care.
