Home From Home

Our wraparound care is focused on children being able to relax and have a fun time. Although our care takes place in the school grounds, we make every effort to make it feel different and not just an extension of the school day. Our purpose-built facilities – New Ravelston for Nursery to Primary 3 children based at our Ravelston site and the Solway Centre for Primary 4 to Primary 7 children based at Queensferry Road – provide an environment where children can play with their friends, relax, socialise and have fun in a comfortable space just as they would do at home. There are also plenty of opportunities to play outdoors where the children can explore and have supervised adventures in the extensive school grounds.

For our younger children we offer unrivalled opportunities to play indoors or outdoors, irrespective of the weather.  Our older children can spend time in the cafe with friends, enjoying quiet time doing homework, or play outside. Whatever the age, there is always something on offer to keep every child happy, relaxed and occupied. During the holidays we also arrange visits to local attractions. 

Teamwork

Wraparound care is run by our e-Plus team. They have been chosen because they love working with children. Many have specialist qualifications in Early Childhood Studies, Playwork and Youth Work.

Our team work together with children to plan a programme of activities which they will enjoy. These are often theme-based and give children the opportunity to have fun through arts and crafts, physical activity and imaginative play.

Our staff are always happy to speak to parents about their child’s individual needs, so please do not hesitate to contact us.
