This facility was set up as part of the School’s commitment to improving the availability of childcare for working parents.
The aims are:
• To provide a safe and caring environment for children.
• To ensure that their physical and social needs are met.
• To provide different activities to those that occur within the School day.
• To provide equal opportunities for children regardless of race, culture, gender, family grouping, language, or disability.
• To promote a good working relationship between parents, children and staff.

Adjoining rooms are used for the session and activities include drawing, construction, jigsaws and small world toys.
