North Edinburgh Childcare Enterprise Limited (NECEL) became the registered provider of Balerno Out of School Club on 14 February 2012.  The club, which has designated space within Balerno High school, provides out of school care for up to 30 children each day during school term time up to 6.00pm.  Care is also available between the hours of 8.00am-6.00pm on school in-service days and the school breaks that take place in February and October.  To be eligible for a place children must be attend Dean Park Primary School or Balerno High School (S1-S2 students only).  (Please note that Primary 1 children must be attending school on a full day basis before they can start to attend the club).


Children from Dean Park Primary school are collected at bell time and escorted on foot from Dean Park Primary School to Balerno High School by the NECEL staff team.    A healthy snack is provided each day including a piece of fruit and a drink.  A varied programme of indoor and outdoor activities based on children’s interests is planned in advance for each session.  Programmes, do however, remain flexible and children have the opportunity to change planned activities at any time if there is something else that they would rather do on any particular day.   We have a large selection of toys, games and resources to stimulate children’s imaginations and keep them busy.  We also offer arts and crafts activities, baking, swimming, a chill out area and a quiet place for children to do their homework so that everyone’s needs are met.
