Klabb 3-16
is an after-school hours’ care service for school-age children, and provides care during school holidays where needed in 30 centres. There is a planned programme of activities on offer where children can first do their homework, play and then participate in various activities. The service provides a safe, stimulating environment with appropriate adult supervision and facilitation during non-school hours.

Skolasajf is offered during summer and caters for school-age children aged between 3-16 years. It extends the hours usually provided by Klabb 3-16 to offer an educational experience for children during school holidays. This programme is offered in 63 Skolasajf centres around Malta and Gozo to meet the demands of the families.
