An After school club for primary age children takes place on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons from 3.00pm – 5.30pm during school terms.

This is a drop-in clubs with no need for pre-booking.

Admission £2.00.

Indoor activities include pool, table tennis, electronic games, board games, art activities and many more. Football and other outdoor activities are also available when the weather permits.

All children have the opportunity of having a healthy snack for an additional 50p.
Water, milk and diluting juice are also provided.


Meadowgreen afterschool provides access to quality affordable childcare in a safe, friendly, caring environment, providing, in consultation with children and young people, a varied programme of activities. Our afterschool is open to children and young people regardless of race, gender, culture or ability.

The service is available for all children between the ages of 5 – 16.
Our afterschool runs Monday – Friday from 3pm until 5.30pm during term time (all our holidays coincide with the local school holidays and our care service is not available on in-service days and bank holidays).

Children are collected from Struthers AV room at 3pm and walked along to the centre using our walking bus service. On our walking bus there will always be a qualified member of staff along with a volunteer. (For more information see attached leaflet at back of book).

When children arrive at the centre they are given a healthy snack (menus are selected by children on a weekly basis) water, milk and diluting juice is available throughout the session for the children. It is important that parents inform staff of any food allergies or any foods they do not wish their children to try. This will be added to your child’s care plan. After snack children participate in a range of activities which include;

  • arts and crafts activities
  • construction play
  • computer play
  • whiteboard games
  • homework area
  • small world play
  • outdoor activities
  • cooking

All activities are planned and a consultation with the children takes place on a monthly basis, here they identify what they would like to do during their time at after school that month.

The cost is £7 per session per child (£6 for each additional child). For more information please send an email to info@meaodgreen.org.uk to receive a copy of our handbook.

Early Learning and Childcare at Meadowgreen

It is with great sadness that the Trustees of the Meadowgreen Foundation, Deveron Road, Troon have taken the decision to not go ahead with Pre-School registration for the 2018/19 term. This will result in a closure of this Pre-School service at the end of June 2018. The Trustees have met with parents and staff regarding this decision and South Ayrshire Council [SAC], as our Partnership Authority for Preschool Services. This has been a very difficult decision, but has been made in the best interests of our parents so that they can make informed choices for their children for next year.

Over recent years there has been an increasing uncertainty around annual registration numbers and the consequent funding arrangements. Also, the recently proposed changes from Scottish Government to increase childcare availability to 6hrs per day and how Preschool service will be delivered, staffed and funded going forward presents further operability uncertainty for the Charity. The Trustees are working in partnership with SAC to ensure the existing commitment to run the service until Summer 2018 is maintained.

A spokesperson for the Trust commented “After almost 20 years of pre-school service, we are saddened to have to make this decision and our immediate focus is to ensure we support the parents and the staff in this difficult period. The Trust is committed to working in partnership with SAC to ensure the term commitment through to Summer 2018 is completed.”

On behalf of the Meadowgreen Trustees
