Wrap Around Care

Flexible childcare options, morning and after school.

At Heatherton we understand that you may need childcare flexibility and support out of standard school hours. We offer Wrap Around Care from 07:30 until 18:00 for all Heatherton pupils from Nursery (age three years and above) to Year 6.

Wrap Around Care gives you the peace of mind that your child is being well cared for, whilst your child will benefit from ensured continuity of care and a routine which helps to prepare them for longer hours spent away from home in the future.

We aim to create a family experience before and after the standard school day with Wrap Around Care, which is very much enjoyed by each pupil that attends.

Activities are chosen by the children, with some doing their homework and others playing games, drawing or working on a creative activity. If they prefer, they can simply watch television during their session.

The Wrap Around Care facility is charged separately to school fees and sessions are booked and paid for in advance via our online booking system, where further details about the cost and length of sessions for both Breakfast Care and After-School Care can be found.

Parents have the option to book their child into Breakfast Club from 07:30 before school and/or After School Care at the end of the school day up until 18:00 if they wish. Due to current government guidelines our extra-curricular activities are changing, therefore, we recommend contacting your school office for the latest information and booking process for WAC. Charges for WAC can be found on the Fees page.
