Wraparound care

At St. Joseph’s School, we understand that juggling work and family life can be challenging. That’s why we offer a range of affordable and convenient childcare options to support our families. Whether you need early morning care, a safe and fun place for your child after school, or both, we’ve got you covered!

Breakfast Club

Our Breakfast Club operates daily from 7:30 am, providing a nurturing environment for children from Nursery to Year 6. For just £2.50 per day, your child will not only have a secure place to start their day but will also enjoy a nutritious breakfast

Early Birds

For those parents who need a little extra time in the morning, we offer the Early Birds program starting at 8:15 am. Priced at just £1 per session, it includes bagels and cereal to kickstart your child’s day in a wholesome way. It’s a great option if your mornings are busy, and you need a reliable and cost-effective solution.

After School Club

Our After School Club (ASC) runs every evening from 3:30 pm to 5:45 pm. This program is designed to keep your child engaged, active, and safe in a familiar and nurturing environment. The full session includes a meal and snack, making it the perfect way to bridge the gap between school and home.

  • Full Wrap-Around Care: For those who require care from 7:30 am to 5:45 pm, we offer a full wrap-around service for just £7 per day. This comprehensive option includes all meals and ensures your child is looked after throughout the day.
  • 3:30 pm – 4:45 pm: This partial ASC option is available at £2.50 per day, but please note that it does not include the evening meal.
  • 3:30 pm – 5:45 pm (including tea): Our extended ASC, which includes a hot meal, is priced at £6 per day. It’s a convenient way to ensure your child is not only supervised but also well-fed during the late afternoon.

Engaging Activities and Experienced Staff

Our ASC is not just about childcare; it’s about enriching your child’s life. We offer a diverse range of activities, including arts and crafts, baking, and sports, all led by our dedicated sports coach. Your child will have the opportunity to explore their interests and develop new skills in a safe and supportive environment.

Our ASC staff are all familiar faces, as they also work on-site in other roles within the school. This means your child will be surrounded by adults they know and trust, creating a comforting and secure atmosphere. Additionally, our staff are all trained in paediatric first aid, ensuring your child’s safety is our top priority.

We are proud to utilize the abundant resources available at St. Joseph’s School, including our well-established Forest School area and full-sized football pitch. Your child will have plenty of opportunities for outdoor play and exploration.

Flexible Booking Options

At St. Joseph’s School, we understand that every family’s needs are unique. That’s why we offer flexible booking options. Parents can choose from short sessions, long sessions, or the full wrap-around day facility at a discounted rate. Our ASC is available for children from 3 years old and up, providing a valuable service to families with children of various ages.

Stay Close to Home

Rest assured that our After School Club takes place within our school grounds, eliminating the need for children to travel to another location. This minimises any disruptions and ensures a smooth transition from school to ASC.

St. Joseph’s School is committed to providing a safe, nurturing, and enriching environment for your child outside of regular school hours. Our extended childcare programmes offer flexibility, affordability, and a wide range of activities to keep your child engaged and happy. We invite you to explore the options we have available and discover how we can support your family’s needs.
