Quality Before, After School & Holiday Club Childcare
Little Runners is an Ofsted registered After School and Holiday Club for children aged 4-11.
We were inspected at Little Ealing Primary School in March 2018 and received an ‘Outstanding judgement.
“The staff and the managers have an outstanding knowledge of how to provide exciting activities and a dynamic learning environment, providing exemplary support for children.” “Support for the children in the early years age range is superb and highly coordinated.” “The club provides a highly stimulating and attractive environment, which is exceptionally well organised. An excellent range of activities is on offer throughout the session.”
We are a family run team, passionate about offering quality childcare for children.
Little Runners was set up by Bobby Behzadi, a qualified PE teacher with 9 years experience in both Primary and Secondary education. An expert in Primary School sports, Bobby set up Little Runners morning sports clubs, to give children a healthy alternative to standard breakfast club childcare. This has since expanded to offer After School Sports clubs, general Breakfast and After School and Holiday club childcare.
