Wraparound

What is classroom wraparound care?

 Classroom wraparound care enables parents to buy additional sessions in the Nursery School.  Holiday Playscheme, Breakfast  Club and After School Club run all year around except for one week’s Christmas holiday.

Parents should firstly discuss their child’s ability to cope with any extra session(s) with the key person.  Once your child is happy and settled at nursery their key person can agree with you to add on and/or increase wraparound sessions.

 Do I have to book in advance?

 You will be asked to sign a contract, booking the places you want on an annual basis. You must give four weeks notice to change your booking or  terminate the contract.

 How do I pay?

 You will be given a monthly invoice to be paid in advance. You can pay at the school office with cash or cheque (made payable to Bristol City Council).

 How much will it cost and what are the session times?

 For an up to date list of costs for childcare please look at the costs page found under the childcare tab. For more details about session times please ask at the reception desk.

Do I have to use the service 5 days a week?

 No. You can book whichever sessions suit you, but they must be the same regular days and a minimum of 2 sessions each week.

 How many places are there

Places are dependent on our numbers in each class  and, as children cannot move classrooms in the middle of the day, places are limited by demand in each class.

 Can I get help with the costs?

 The School is unable to offer any subsidised places. However, if you would like details on how to access Tax Credits and/or other benefits or bursaries, please contact the Local Authority helpline on telephone number 0845 1297217.

 What about meals?

 We can provide your child with a hot lunch at a cost of £2.25 (diet options are available).  Alternatively, your child can bring a packed lunch.

 What if I need to cancel a session?

 You will still be charged for your regular sessions if your child is unable to attend.
