Brambly Hedge Day Nursery, Castleford WRAPAROUND CARE

(Before & After School Care and Holiday Club for 3-11 year olds).

Brambly Hedge Day Nursery has a strong reputation within the local community for offering high quality care and learning for 0-5 year olds. Likewise, our wrap around care for 3-11 year olds, aims to provide parents with peace of mind and reassurance that their children are being cared for in a quality environment which is staffed by trained and qualified early years professionals. Our Before and After School Clubs and Holiday Clubs are based in their own separate room / ‘wing’ which gives children complete independence and their ‘own space’ away from our younger children (0-5 year olds).

Our Before and After School care and pick up service is solely for use for children attending our neighbouring school, Three Lane Ends Academy, (we do not offer a pick up service from any other school) but our Holiday Club is open to all children from the whole of Castleford and the surrounding areas (Methley, Normanton and Pontefract).

Breakfast Club: 7.30-9.00am (School Term Time Only)

Drop off your child in the morning and we will give them a tasty breakfast and then take them safely to school (Three Lane Ends Academy). Breakfast is served buffet style, so children can make their own choices and includes plenty of healthy options – wholemeal toast, choice of toppings, cereals and fresh fruit. We also supervise a wide range of free choice activities, indoors and outdoors, to ease them gently into the day.

After School Club: 3.00-6.00pm (School Term Time Only)

We will collect your child from school (Three Lane Ends Academy) and bring them back to the nursery. They will be ready for something to eat and drink, so a freshly prepared healthy snack will be served. We will keep them happily entertained with lots of different activities such as art and crafts, computer games, board games and jigsaws, construction toys and both small world play and role play. Children will also have access to outdoor play in our own safe and secure woodland play area where children will participate in treasure hunts, picnics etc. We also plan regular themed activities and special events. If your child would rather get on with their homework, we make sure they have a quiet spot and appropriate support.

Holiday Club: 8.00am (an earlier 7.30am start is available at a small extra cost)-6.00pm (During all School Holidays, excluding Bank Holidays)

Our Holiday Club provides the support you need and gives children the chance to take part in a wide variety of carefully planned and free choice activities, with strong adult support and guidance. For example, children will have access to creative workshops, games, a giant connect four, computer games, books, sports, outdoor play and exploring nature, picnics, treasure hunts, dance, art, cookery, construction toys, dolls, role play, music and culturally themed weeks.
