Wrap Around Care at Pre-Prep

We understand how important it is for families to be able to access a fully flexible wrap around care programme.

Need an early start?

For families who need to drop off early at School, we run a Breakfast Club from 7.30 am (charges apply). We also offer a free ‘Early Birds’ drop off from 8am.

What happens after school?

Our after school care is called The Den and it is available from 3.30-6pm every day for The Nest to Year 3. The Den is a supervised, play-based provision. Children are often to be found playing and exploring outside and in the colder months, they enjoy a range of activities indoors such as lego, ICT, craft and board games. After the end of a busy day at School, the Den is the perfect chance for our children to relax or let off some stream, choosing how energetic they would like to be. Whether they are keen to run, swing and climb, or sit in a calm space and share a story, the staff at The Den will be on hand to support.

The Den is split into two chargeable sessions (4.00pm – 5.00pm and 5.00pm – 6.00pm). The later slot includes a two course cooked tea.

Is there an after school activity programme?

After school activities are offered from Reception, with the offering increasing in scope as the children get older. Timings can vary, particularly for our younger children, but most activities take place between 4-5pm. Activities do change from term to term, but as a general guide children can choose from the following activities (* activities carry an additional charge):
