Extended Hours

Lunchclub

Kingswood offer a lunch club for both Pre-School and Nursery children.

Lunch club is dependent upon availability and needs to be booked in advance as a regular session so we can ensure we have sufficient staff.

Lunch club is open from 11.30am – 12.30pm and children bring a packed lunch from home. Please use the forms attached to book a place.

Wraparound

Kingswood offer ‘wraparound’ care for both Pre-School and Nursery children which can be booked in addition to the child’s funded 15 hours. The wraparound care is booked in 3 hour slots – please see forms attached for prices. Wraparound care is dependent upon availability and needs to be booked in advance as a regular session so we can ensure we have enough staff.

Wraparound care can be booked from 8.30 – 11.30am or 12.30 – 3.30pm. If your child is staying all day then you would also need to book lunch club. The children take part in complimentary adult led activities to their funded hours to ensure they are not repeating sessions.
