MEET THE TEAM

Collectively School’s Out Henleaze has experience working in numerous different childcare settings which come together to create a great place for children to thrive. The team also has a wealth of experience in staff management, coaching and training as well as business organisation and management.

Scheme Managers

The Managers are our most experienced team members. Their key role is to manage the day-to-day business of their scheme. They plan and coordinate the delivery of the daily programme of fun filled activities, working closely with the Playworkers to make sure the sessions are well resourced and run safely and smoothly. As a parent they are also your key contact at the relevant scheme and are always happy to answer any questions you may have.
