Stay & Play at Ramillies is an Ofsted registered Before and After School Club for children attending Lane End Primary School.  

Managed by friendly and professional staff, we provide a caring and safe environment where children  relax and have fun.  

Before school we escort children from Stay & Play to Lane End Primary School.  Then after school we collect the children and escort them back to Stay & Play at Cheadle Hulme Methodist Church.

Children who take part in after school activities can be collected from school and escorted to Stay & Play by a member of our team at the appropriate finishing time.

We are committed to protecting all data and privacy. Our Data Protection policy is available to view on request

Stay & Play at Ramillies has access to a range of facilities that all benefit the children.  We are able to use Lane End's playground, field and Trim Trail after school for outdoor play.

We are based in a large room at the church which gives us the opportunity to provide a wide range of activities for the children to enjoy if they wish.  

We also have access to the main hall at the church which gives the children space to play sports and games throughout the year and to express themselves through imaginative play.

Finally the fully equipped kitchen at the church gives the children the opportunity to experience the fun of cooking, baking and food tasting which are favourite activities. 

We provide a wide range of activities suitable for all ages and abilities.  A range of structured activities are always provided giving the children the freedom of choice to do as much or as little as they would like.  You can see the most recent activities the children have been up to here.

Activities at Stay & Play include:




Role Play and Dressing up

Card Games

Thinking puzzles


Motor skill games

Team games


 Each week we have a 'theme' that links into events or projects the children are interested in or are doing at school.  Themes can include seasons, celebrations, topics such as Egyptians, Dinosaurs, Easter, Chinese New Year, Pets and many more.  We offer craft materials, colouring pages, painting, word puzzles and even cooking activities that relate to the theme which the children can get involved in if they would like to.

After school each day we provide the children with healthy and nutritional snacks.  Staff are always aware of food allergen requirements. Water and milk are always available for the children. The children are expected to sit at the table and have their snack. Children are encouraged to be polite and have good table manners.  This follows our policy of promoting British Values. 


At Stay & Play we are flexible and willing to accept 'one off' bookings.  If you have an un-expected crisis or just to want to shop or have some "chill-out time" please get in touch
