Wrap Around Care

Morning and after school childcare

At Berkhamsted Pre-Prep we understand that there will be times when you may need childcare flexibility. We offer Wrap Around Care from 07:30 to 18:00 for children at Berkhamsted Pre-Prep during term time.

If your working hours or other commitments mean you need your child to be cared for beyond the school day, you can be rest assured that the outstanding provision of Pre-Prep is replicated with our extended child care.

Our Wrap Around Care (WAC) is a ‘home from home’ experience.  We aim to create a family experience and atmosphere where we recognise that our children thrive if they are cared for and their physical and emotional needs are met by child care that is tuned into their needs.  It is essential that children are given the chance to relax before and after school if they are to flourish and make the most of their busy day.

Children will have access to a range of activities that promote creativity, imagination, social interactions and relaxation.  Our children often choose to go the WAC because it is like going on a playdate!   A wonderful way to unwind after a busy day of learning and to feel part of our Pre-Prep family.

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.
