Our Team

Since 2001 we have been providing the children of Sussex with exciting and stimulating play environments.

In order to provide an excellent level of care and exciting play opportunities for every child, we hand pick up our team for their fun and playful attitude, hard work and enthusiasm.

As one of the largest providers of out-of-school clubs in the UK, we employ more than 180 Play Leaders, Club Co-ordinators, Assistant Club Co-ordinators and an administrative team.

Children get to know our team extremely well and develop really strong and positive relationships with them.

We operate a Safer Recruitment policy which ensures that each person is completely right for the role and DBS checked.

Class Of Their Own is one of the largest providers of After School and Holiday Clubs in the country.
