Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope you have had a wonderful summer!

We have been busy with preparations for Notre Dame Kids Club throughout the holiday and we are all set to launch on Thursday 13th August.

There are a few pieces of information we would like to pass on:


The primary contact details for Notre Dame Kids Club are and 07491 999 452 – please save this number to your phone.

You can still contact our main office in Hyndland After School Club via and 0141 339 9526.

Usually, I will be available from 1.15pm to 6.15pm each day, and someone will be available in our main office from 8am to 6pm.  If we do not answer the phone, or if you call outwith those hours, please leave a message and we will get back to you asap.

Please do not contact the school office or Mrs Gordon about any matters relating to Notre Dame Kids Club as it is run independently of the school.  While Mrs Gordon is very supportive of the club, she is busy enough with her head teacher duties!


We are based in the main hall and access is via the bridge – the entrance to the bridge is on Dowanhill Street (opposite the new entrance to Dowanhill Park).

The gate to the bridge should be locked – please press the buzzer for the janitor and he will let you in.  Please do not buzz the head teacher!  If there is no reply from the janitor, we will place our own buzzer by the gate and one of our staff members will let you in.  This procedure is to ensure secure entry and your children’s safety.  We will normally have staff and children in the playground from around 3.15pm to 5.45pm each day… so if there are any buzzer issues just give one of our staff members a wave!

Once you are through the gate to the bridge, the entrance to Notre Dame Kids Club is via the sliding door at the main hall which is towards the end of the bridge on the left.  Please do not use the main entrance to the school – this requires more buzzing (!) so it’s easier for you to come directly to the main hall.

Finally, Notre Dame Kids Club is contained within the new extension – we will not be using any part of the main school building aside from the children’s toilets on the ground floor.  Please do not enter the main school building as teachers will still be working after 3pm.


Please email ( or call (0141 339 9526) our main office for all matters relating to the payment of fees for Notre Dame Kids Club.  Payments can be made via bank transfer, or by card or cash in our main office.  No transactions will be made at Notre Dame Kids Club.


We will update our website – – and send out a newsletter after the first full week.  We will arrange an open evening shortly after and, if you are interested, there will be an opportunity for you to join our board.

We have been planning Notre Dame Kids Club for well over a year now so I am delighted it is finally about to launch!  I am very much looking forward to seeing everyone in the coming weeks, and seeing the children enjoy all the new activities we have on offer.  In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you would like more information.

Best wishes,

John Ansdell
Manager, Notre Dame Kids Club
