Our aftercare service is available to children from Group 3 (3 years old) at an additional cost, as stated on our fees letter. Children are accommodated in safe classrooms and playgrounds, and the fees include a healthy lunch and a snack.
Early drop-off and holiday programme
We accommodate working parents by allowing children to be dropped off early in the morning (from 07:15). To ensure our children’s safety, they remain in class – or at aftercare – until they are picked up. Furthermore, although the Castle closes during school holidays, we offer a special holiday programme for aftercare children to accommodate working parents.
Contact us for more information on the holiday programme.
Indoor play areas
Children learn by interacting with the world around them. Therefore, our classrooms themselves are considered to be inanimate teachers of sorts. They are designed to allow maximum room for play and movement while being stimulating on a visual and tactile level. An additional indoor play area allows a change in play space on days that the weather doesn’t allow outdoor play.
Outdoor play areas
Our outdoor play areas include jungle gyms, play houses, shaded areas, a sand pit and more. These areas are designed to encourage physical play, and generally have synthetic grass to prevent allergic reactions. Children are taken outside to play on days with moderate weather conditions to prevent excessive cold or sunburn. Additional safety measures are taken on sunny days; these will be discussed with parents after enrolment.
