Daily Routines and Activities

In breakfast club, children are always offered cereal and toast with juice or water to drink. There is often yoghurt and/or fruit available as well. After breakfast, children have the opportunity to play board games, to read or play with a selection of toys.  Children often enjoy helping to tidy up or just chatting to their friends until they walk across to school.

Parents are required to register for Care Club and must book and pay for all sessions in advance. We accept childcare vouchers from a range of employee childcare voucher providers, including Computershare, Busy Bees, Fair Care and Edenred - we can register for other providers if required and we encourage the use of childcare vouchers.

We encourage parents to book sessions as far in advance as possible, preferably half a term at a time. These childcare places are often in demand so it is essential that we know of any opportunities to offer places to other families throughout the year.

All bookings for After School Care Club, Breakfast Club and Wraparound Care are now made online through ParentMail, all bookings need to be paid for in advance this will then allow you to book your sessions.

Please note that children collected late will incur a charge for the next full session.

A higher rate of late fees of £3 per 15 minutes per child will be charged if children have not been collected by 6:00pm.
