Pit Stop

"Inspiring each other to success"

We have been providing before and after school care for children since April 2014.

The purpose of Pitstop is to provide parents with a safe, reliable and fun before and after school childcare option.  Pitstop has received fantastic reviews from parents and children.

Our breakfast club, led by Mrs Towersey, is focused on helping children to prepare for a busy school day by providing a ‘home from home environment’, where they will receive a sustaining, healthy breakfast of fruit juice, cereals and toast. They are also able to choose from a variety of activities such as art, craft, cooking, lego, puzzles, books and games.

Our after school care which will be run by Mrs Louise Ward from September 2018, gives children the opportunity to be as active as they would like with sporting activities on offer such as tennis, rounders and football, together with relaxing activities which include art, craft, cooking, computing and board games.

If you would like your child/children to attend ‘Pitstop’ please complete and return the Booking Form, Child Information Sheet and Agreement forms to the school office as soon as possible. The Booking Form can be emailed to school.office@congerstone.leics.sch.uk but signed copies of the other forms will need to be provided.

There may be the opportunity to book places at short notice but please bear in mind this will be dependent on the number of children already booked in for that session.

Breakfast Session

7.45am to 8.45am, with or without breakfast, £6.00 per session and £5.00 for a younger sibling, regardless of the time your child/ren arrive. Breakfast will be served between 8.00am and 8.30am.

Children staying to an after-school club will be collected and taken to the ‘Pitstop’ in Cedar Lodge.

Children can be collected at any time up to 5.45pm, however if your child/ren is collected after 5.45pm you will be charged an additional £15 per child late collection fee.

Please remember to sign your child out at the end of their after-school session.

After-School Session

3.20pm to 5.45pm, with or without a snack, £12.50 and £10.50 for a younger sibling per session, regardless of whether they attend an after-school club first or are collected before 5.45pm.

Short-notice Bookings

It may be possible to book your child into the ‘Pitstop’ at short notice but this will depend on the number of children already attending the session. Please ring to confirm the place before assuming that a place is available.

Before school = £6.50 / After school = £14


Children enjoy sitting round the table as a group as they eat breakfast/snacks together . A variety of activities are offered these are often driven by the collective wishes of the children, and the weather; children love playing outside on the MUGA/field with balls, scooters, tennis etc. Inside activities include games, role play and craft, or they are able to have some quiet time where they can sit and relax or read.
