Childcare

We have a range of childcare options to help busy parents manage their family’s schedules both before and after school as well as extensive after school clubs.

Nursery and Pre-Prep

Morning Club: 7.45 – 8.15am (currently unavailable due to restrictions)

A very warm welcome and a big smile will greet your child at Breakfast Club. Your child will be entertained until 8.10am, when he or she will be taken by the hand to their classroom to join his or her teacher and the rest of the class.

A morning session costs £4.25 and is added to the school bill. Sign up via the Pre-Prep office on 01243 778496.

After School Care: 3.15 – 5.15pm (and 3.15pm – 4.00pm on Wednesday)

Children are entertained by Westbourne’s Childcare Supervisor, Emma Eckert, who will collect your child from their classroom at the end of their day and lead them to the Frog Room or Pre-Prep Hall to receive a healthy snack. Refuelled, there are a range of structured activities on offer for the children to enjoy, which include music and movement, art, construction, baking and a whole host of role-play and games. Children would usually be given a light supper at 4.45pm (currently unavailable due to restrictions).

Sign up online at the beginning of term or get in touch with Sara Lines, Pre-Prep office. The cost is £7 per hour and £5.25 for the shorter Wednesday session.  

If you are collecting children from the Pre-Prep and the Prep school, please collect Nursery and Pre-Prep children first. There will be additional charges for late collection.
