Alderley Edge Pre-school

 


We are really pleased to be able to share with you some very exciting news, we are going to be offering a holiday club alongside our Pre School sessions. The holiday club will be offered to our current Pre School children and will run by the pre-school staff during the Easter, Whit and summer holidays. We will be running the session from our woodland area, with access to the pre-school facilities. The sessions will be a reflection of our ethos in pre-school and also support the ideas that inform forest schools. Each day children will be learning about fire & woodland safety, building fires, managing appropriate risks, experiencing the natural world and taking part in fun engaging woodland themed activities.

We will be initially opening up for one week during the Whit holiday 3rd-7th June and continuing in the summer for two weeks 12th-22nd August 2019. We will be trialling these holiday sessions this year with the aim to be fully up and running from the spring term in 2020. Booking forms will be available after Easter for the Whit holiday sessions, please note that we are offering a limited number of places and the numbers will be significantly lower than what we can offer during the term time. Places will be offered on a first come first serve basis. Invoices will need to be paid in advance of the session, the current terms and conditions of the pre-school will apply to the holiday club. Please note only children who attend the Pre-School or children who are of reception age and have previously attend Pre School or Alderley Primary School will be able book in for the sessions.
