Wraparound Attendance and Ad-Hoc sessions
Parents can access additional fee-paying sessions at our Children's Club, even as a one off occurrence on an Ad-Hoc basis. This enables parents to temporarily or permanently increase the hours their child attends nursery by adding fee-paying sessions to their funded education at the nursery. Children are walked between the two buildings via a pathway by members of staff.
