We at Ralston Out of School Care aim to offer Out of School Care and holiday care to children of school age up to the age of 14 years old. 

We aim to offer play and education opportunities that are both fun and challenging.  We will promote the dignity, privacy, choice, safety, potential and diversity of all users and staff of the club.

We offer an out of school service for primary school children and those in the first 2 years of secondary. We are based in Ralston primary school and run afternoon sessions between 3.00pm and 6.00pm and morning sessions between 8.00am and 9.00am. We also offer full day care play schemes during the summer holidays, the Easter holidays and the October week.

Our staff team are all PVG checked and members of the SSSC. They are all qualified childcare workers with many additional skills including STEM, sports, first aid and arts and crafts.

During our normal term sessions we offer a variety of activities. We have quiet areas and support from staff for homework as well as outside play space and a gym hall for the children to be active. We have a variety of games consoles and computers and more traditional toys and games like board games, dolls houses and building blocks. We also have a well stocked craft cupboard for children who want to be creative.

During the play schemes we like to take the children on as many trips as we can. Favourites include trips to Millport, the Waterfront and the seaside towns of Ayr, Largs and Saltcoats along with activities like sledging, speed boat trips and activity days at lochwinnoch.


We also organise a number of special events throughout the year including parties, discos, fundraising events and shows.
