What You Need-to-Know About the Junior Kids Club

We offer the Junior Kids Club to children aged between 6-11 as part of our Children and Young People programme.

The club is based at Brunswick Youth and Community Centre. Contact us for directions. We take kids from all locations, not just Bootle and Sefton.

Club hours vary depending on the time of year:

  1. During school-time, our Junior Kids Club is open from 3:15pm to 5pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and from 11am to 1pm on Saturdays (on Saturdays until 1 April 2016).
  2. During half term and holidays, the club is open between 10am-4pm.

The cost also varies, depending on where the club is held and the activity:

  1. Normal sessions are 50p each per child. These are held at Brunswick Youth and Community Centre.
  2. The cost of sessions away from The Brunny varies. Call us on 0151 922 3552 for up-to-date details.

Children are given a light snack and drink during the sessions at The Brunny. Food at sessions away from The Brunny varies depending on the activity.

The Club is run by Sara Bowden and her colleagues. Our Junior Kids Club team are trained youth workers, apprentices, and volunteers.

PLEASE NOTE: All children must be brought in and collected by a parent or legal guardian. 

If this is not possible, relatives, friends of parents, or older siblings can drop off or collect children by prior arrangement with Club organisers.
