Often, children start school on a part-time basis for the first 4-6 weeks of term. Where your child is attending a school within which there is an Acorn Childcare centre, we can offer care around these part-time sessions. We offer care within the standard opening hours of each Acorn Childcare Centre, with the children escorted to and from their reception class for their allocated school session. Application forms for this service will be automatically distributed to all ‘pre-school’ leavers when parents have been informed of their child’s allocated school.
Before & After-School Care
When your child is attending school full-time, all of our Acorn Childcare Centres offer a care service for the hours before and after school. Younger children are escorted to and from their classrooms around the school day and cared for by Acorn Childcare. Activities are planned for the children’s enjoyment within our care and a selection are available at any one time. Snacks and drinks are provided after school. Application forms for this service can be obtained at any time.
An additional service is available during school holidays. We provide wrap-around care for parents who need childcare for school-age children in the holidays (not including Christmas).
