Session Times and Fees
Currently we offer breakfast club from 8.30am-9am where children enjoy a bowl of cereal, a slice of toast and a drink with their friends. They really love starting the day by having breakfast with their friends and we love having extra time with them! Our sessions run from 9am-12pm and 12pm-3pm. Children are welcome to stay or come in early to join us for lunch from 12pm-1pm. We offer wraparound care after preschool from 3pm-4pm.
We aim to offer breakfast club and wraparound sessions on an ongoing basis, however this depends on uptake of children and is reviewed on a regular basis to ensure its financial viability. We will always consult with parents before making any decisions in relation to this matter.

Snack and Food
Snack is provided by the preschool and all the children sit down at 10.30am to share a snack which comprises of two fruits, one carbohydrate and a dairy product. Milk and water is provided. When possible, children will also be provided with dips such as hummus and meat such as ham or chicken. Children should be supplied with their own drink bottle which can be left at preschool.
- sandwiches/wraps/pitta bread with a healthy filling,
- and milk based desserts, such as yoghurt.
- We prefer the children to have a healthy packed lunch and encourage parents and careers to support us in this by providing a balanced lunch for their child.
Children arrive for breakfast club from 8.30am and sit down together to enjoy some cereal, toast and a drink ready to start the day with lots of energy for playing with their friends. At 9am more children arrive for the morning session and we welcome them to preschool where they join their friends for some free play while the children settle in. We start the day with a wake up shake up activity and can often be found dancing around preschool to our favourite nursery rhymes. We then all sit down for circle time to talk about our topic for the term, things we have done and we may play a game. We also teach the children Jolly Phonics and this takes place during circle time too.
