Lunch Club is available from 12pm - 1pm on Monday to Thursday (Monday to Friday from September 2021), for parents who want to extend their child's care after a morning session. There is an additional charge of £5 or alternatively you can use your FEE/ FEET entitlement for lunch club too.

All sessions are planned with the key EYFS principles in mind, which guide the work of all Early Years Practitioners.
There are four main themes:
A unique child
Learning and Development
Within the themes are seven areas of learning:
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Communication and Language Development
Understanding of The World
Expressive Arts and Design
We are committed to planning and implementing aspects of the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage). Both through play based and planned activities children get the chance to choose their own activities with adults interacting closely alongside. Staff also plan regular activities to promote learning and development within different areas of the EYFS.
