Our Sessions

We are open Monday to Friday, 9am to 3pm.

Children can attend either morning (9am-12pm) or afternoon sessions (12pm-3pm), or full days.

We also offer a 9am to 1pm session to allow children who only attend morning sessions to stay for lunch with us.

Our Wednesday sessions are open to children who will be moving up to infant school at the start of the next school year, we refer to these children as our Wise Owls.


Where possible we encourage the children to attend the all day session as we have a more structured day and greater opportunities for them to work towards building specific skills in preparation for school.  As the end of the summer term approaches we also use this time to visit the Infant School and to meet the reception teachers.  We also have a fortnightly PE session with Adrian Perks from A Star Sports during our Wise Owl Wednesday.  This is highly popular session and allows the children to experience a wide range of physical activities.   To help cover the cost of this session and to ensure that we are able to continue with this arrangement we ask for a contribution of £2.50 per child per PE session.
