Welcome to WASPs

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Several years ago I joined a steering committee, along with other local residents and professionals in childcare, our aim was to establish an after school care facility in Wheathampstead. In November 1992 we launched Wasps (Wheathampstead After School Play Scheme). During those years our club has gone from strength to strength to where we are today. Not just an after school club but a breakfast club and holiday club too.

Based at Beech Hyde Primary School we offer wrap around care for the families of Wheathampstead and to those children attending Beech Hyde and St Helens Schools.

We are very proud of our reputation in providing a reliable and affordable childcare service to the local community and surrounding area; working hard to the highest standards, giving you the peace of mind that your children are happy and safe in our care and above all are having fun.

Thank you for visiting our website, I hope you find it informative and I look forward to meeting you soon.
