If a child has an EPI pen this will only be administered by a trained member of staff and with prior consent from the parent and guardian with a signed form which we will ask you to fill in at the club.

Please speak with your employer to see if this is something they offer or could offer for you.

We are registered with many childcare voucher providers; the list of providers will be available in your account. However if we are not registered with a provider you use, please let us know and we will be happy to sign up with them.

You can use your childcare vouchers to pay for your childcare for all or part of your bill.

What our parents say

“J really enjoys his afternoons at Casa, a happy environment where he plays and enjoys
activities amongst friends. The staff are always welcoming and obviously care for all the
children. J always comes home happy and suitably worn out! 
Thank you”

“ My son ‘A’ has a (quote) ‘Fan-daby-dosy’ time with Casa at your Frimley Easter Holiday Club. It was clear the Casa has thoughtfully planned activities, ‘A’ came home with lots to tell me each day. I honestly have never seen him so eager to leave me before.. but for Casa he definitely did. You guys do an amazing job in keeping ‘A’ happy and engaged in meaningful play…. and having tried other establishments for holiday provision I can say that ‘A’ enjoyed your setting very much. He is looking forward to coming back for future clubs with you. Thank you for your hard work”

A. Darko, Casa Clubs Frimley

“My daughter had a fantastic time at the Easter Holiday clubs, after her first session she couldn’t wait to go back. We will definitely be returning in the summer, thanks for providing a great club”

H.Cashin, Casa Clubs

” We will be keeping an eye out for booking in the summer holidays. The boys had a great time on the two days they attended and ‘E’ had been to two other clubs and announced that Casa was the best. The boys enjoyed the baking activities and the bouncy castle being their favourites but they also liked the fact the groups were small. The staff were very friendly, organized and security was good. Thank you”

Mrs Stoker, Casa Clubs

My son started attending Kids Den Breakfast Club since he started Reception in 2015 and I cannot fault the service he has received whilst there. The staff are friendly and available to discuss any queries/ issues that I may have. The setting has loads of space and various activities available to keep him engaged and ready for the start of his school day. Although not a regular in the after-school programme he has attending on the odd occasion and he must like it as he often asked if he can also do after-school clubs as well. In a shell, I highly recommend any parent using the service provided by Casa Clubs, especially at Kids Den.
