Early Birds and Night Owls
At Whitchurch Primary School and Nursery we are proud to run our own breakfast and after school chlldcare for children from aged 4 in Reception right through to Year 6. Our childcare provision runs during term time providing high quality, planned and resourced activities to keep children engaged before and after school.
Childcare is booked in advance for the term and paid for a half term in advance. We do not take ad hoc bookings so that we can ensure adequate staff rations, activity planning and meal requirements.

Early Birds Breakfast Club (£6 per session)
Children can be dropped off at the main reception from 7.30am and are taken to their classroom at 8.45am. Our breakfast provision is a buffet style breakfast with children helping themselves to fruit, cereal, milk, toast, bagels and pancakes. We aim to provide a calm and relaxed start the children's days with a focus on board games, puzzles and reading. After children have enjoyed a relaxed, nutritious breakast our experienced and dedicated staff will escort them to their clases to start learning.
Fees - £6 per session (50% concessions for Free School Meals and Siblings)
Night Owls After School Club (£10 per session)
Children are collected from their classroom at 3.20pm and escorted to the Night Owls club which operates until 5.45pm. Each week our staff work alongside the children to plan exciting activities for the following week. We always plan a physical (outdoor game) each day, a creative development / arts and crafts activity, complemented with baking on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Our staff also build in a space for those children who want to get on with their homework or reading in a quiet zone. We share our weekly activity schedule with parents every Friday along with the menu for the week. Our staff prepare hot snacks three times a week with sandwich options on Tuesdays and Thursdays when we encourage children to make their own sandwiches, wraps or bagels.
Fees - £10 per session (50% concessions for Free School Meals and Siblings)
