Daycare: additional hours
In addition to the free early education for 3 to 4 year olds, either 15 or 30 hours, we offer paid-for education and care at £5.50 per hour and for a minimum of 2 days a week in these patterns:
- term-time (38 weeks a year), 8am to 4pm or
- term-time (38 weeks a year), 8am to 6pm or
- year-round (48 weeks a year), 8am to 6pm.
- Breakfast Club, 8am to 9am, £5.50 a session and/or
- Teatime Club, 4pm to 6pm, £8 a session.
All children who are here between 8am and 9am are offered breakfast of toast and cereal, children who stay until 6pm are given a home-cooked snack tea.
On days you do not require a long day you will still be expected to bring your child to a 3-hour session. When children come to school every week day they build stronger social bonds with other children and with staff, and this aids their development. They also get used to having a weekday routine, which is helpful for all the family as preparation for primary school.
