Our Clubs
Additional to the Preschool, we also offer a Toddler Group, a Breakfast Club, Lunch Club, an After-school Club and our Holiday Club. Please see below or contact us where we will be pleased to discuss your requirements.
Toddler Group
Every friday during term time we run a village toddler group.  Each session is from 1.30 to 3pm at a cost of 50p for 0-6 months, £1.00 6months - 1 year, £2.00 1 year on and £1 per extra child.  A member of the Preschool staff sets out and oversees activities for the children to enjoy and crafts to make.

The children are encouraged to sit together to have a drink and snack and parents have the chance to have a cuppa too. The Preschool has a fantastic outside area and toys where the children can play, subject to the weather! Toddler Group allows your child to get familiar with the Preschool environment before they are Preschool age, this can help make the transition into Preschool easier.


Example weekly events from last term:
1.  Making necklaces
2.  Face painting
3.  Making windmills
4.  Making money boxes
5.  Cake making
6.  Tile painting

Breakfast Club
The Breakfast Club runs Monday to Friday between 7.45.am and 8.55am, for children aged 3 to 11. The children will be provided with a healthy nutritional breakfast from a choice of healthy cereals, yoghurt, fromage frais, wholemeal or white toast with a choice of spreads such as jam, marmalade, marmite etc. Fruit juice, milk or water will be offered and then breakfast is followed by a period of play and activities.  The children will then be escorted to school.

We aim to support both working and non working parents and you may be able to get extra help with the costs via Working Tax credit if one or both parents work at least 16 hours a week.  If you wish to find out beforehand you can log onto www.inlandrevenue.gov.uk

The cost of each session is £5.00 per day or £1.25 (8.30am-8.50am).  If you wish to book your child in please ask Nicky King for a registration form, where more details will be taken of your child's dietary issues, emergency numbers etc. The Breakfast Club is led by qualified staff that are first aid and food hygiene trained.  We intend to occasionally have a "special" breakfast morning with the menu chosen by the children.
