Wrap Around Care
Wrap Around Care
Our Wrap Around Childcare is provided by 3 amazing local providers; Care 4 Kids, Moonbeams and Teresa Sellens. Not having before and afterschool provision ‘in–house’ offers many advantages:
- Extended hours of childcare morning and afternoon
- More flexibility
- Children are not spending their extended day all in one setting, we find the break between school and afterschool care both relaxing and beneficial for the children
- Continuity of care in the school holidays
Each provider differs in their type of childcare, facilities and setting, but all offer a ‘drop off’ and ‘pick up’ service. Please read the ‘Bios’ below to find out more.
