Wrap around Care
Culgaith’s Early Years provision is an important part of our school - it's where the building blocks of learning are established.
The key objectives of our nursery are for the children to have fun and to become ready for the expectations of 'big school'. This occurs through children playing and working alongside Reception and Year 1 children in Class 1 with the development of early writing, reading and number skills, in line with the Early Years Framework, whilst still maintaining a play-led ethos with art, role-play and outdoor learning.
Our Nursery is very much integrated into the day-to-day life of our school where the Nursery children join in with assemblies and playtimes in addition to working with Class 3 children with drama and reading on Thursday afternoons.
Please feel free to arrange a visit to have a look around.
Receiving a friendly welcome, children can attend Breakfast club 5 days a week from 7.45-8.45. Led by qualified staff, children receive a balanced breakfast and play before school. There are a number of different activities to choose from such as craft, lego and games in addition to having the chance to talk to friends, read or just have some quiet time before school.
Breakfast club is very flexible and can be used only when needed or regularly. However, it is always useful for the school to know if you will be using in regularly so we can provide appropriate resources and breakfast.
- The cost is £2.50 or £1.50 without breakfast.
Apres School is our after school kids club where the children play, learn, bake and participate in games. Apres School has been running as a trial for nearly a year but we will be making this permanent after Easter. Children are able to be booked in from Monday to Thursday. We require the children to be booked in to Apres School in advance and bookings forms are sent out at the beginning of each half term. However, children can be booked in via email, phone call or chat each morning before school.
Each night will provide a different focus which will run concurrently with the general activities.
Charging for after school care is as follows:
- 3:15pm to 4:45pm (or any part) = £4.00
- 4:45pm to 5:15pm = additional £2.00
- 5:15pm to 5:45pm = additional £2.00
