We operate a session-based system, where you pay per session for your child and pick as many or as few sessions as you like. We offer grant sessions for 3 - 4 year olds both for 15 and 30 hours per week and we also accept Me2 funded children. You can use your grants for sessions that include meals but there is a charge for the meal if you do. (Breakfast £1.50, lunch £2.50 and tea £1.50)
Feel free to drop your child in at any point during this session. The children are served a light breakfast of cereal, milk and toast.
Planned activities and free play...creative play, messy play, puppets, outside play, circle time. In the Pre-School room we have a full-time qualified teacher during the morning and afternoon sessions who plans activities to support the 7 areas of learning and development.
All children sit down to a home-cooked meal prepared by our on-site-chef. This is a more relaxed time of the day where children are given the opportunity to lie down.
Much like the morning session, with lots of opportunities for children to develop their specific areas of learning through planned and free-choice activities, inside and out.
A relaxed end of the day, with opportunity for children to pick their own activities. A light tea of sandwiches and fruit, or something similar, is served. You are welcome to collect your child at any point during this session.
