Cool Kids@Cradoc

CoolKids@Cradoc is one of the leading providers of out of school childcare in Powys.

We aim to:

  • Address the parents/carers needs in enabling them to return to work knowing that their children are receiving the highest possible level of care.
  • Provide the best possible standard of play opportunities and workshops to create a varied and enjoyable experience for the children attending.
  • Ensure our staff are trained to the recognised standards and are committed to striving for even higher standards and qualifications.
  • Have a commitment to monitor, maintain and update our policies in line with all of the latest legislation to safeguard the children in our care.
  • Maintain a pricing policy that will ensure we can provide a full and sustainable service.  To help parents with payments we have introduced several new voucher payment schemes. These hopefully, long term, will make childcare more affordable for the families using the club.


The Breakfast Club runs from 8.00am to 9.05am and proves to be a big help for parents who start work early or have long distances to travel. The children are given a healthy breakfast and drink when they arrive followed by free play, organised games and art and craft.

The After School Club runs from 3.30pm to 6.00pm. At the beginning of each after school session children are given a snack consisting of sandwiches, cheese, crackers, fresh fruit, dried fruit and a drink of water, milk or sugar free squash. Drinks are available at all times and for the children attending until 6.00pm we offer an additional biscuit and drink at around 5.30pm.  We are always happy to cater for any special dietary needs and welcome any suggestions from parents regarding our snacks.

The Holiday Club runs from 8am to 6pm for almost all Summer holidays. We usually have theme weeks, such as pirates, kings and queens, dinosaurs etc where many of the activities available relate to the theme.

Working with Cradoc School and 3@Cradoc, we can provide wrap-around care, from 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday for 49 weeks of the year.


We value the reputation for the high quality of childcare that we provide and therefore we endeavour to reappraise our service on a continual basis.
