The wraparound care service can be pictured like that of a jigsaw. Parents are given the opportunity to build up their own care provision according to their family needs. This can incorporate a mixture of Early Birds, Extended Day and After School Club.
How it works
We offer before school care for children from Nursery - Primary 3 (Early Birds), after school care and holiday care for our children from Nursery and throughout the Junior School. The provision is called e-Plus and is designed to be fun for your child and flexible for you . During term time children can attend any of our wraparound care services. These services are available on a permanent or ad hoc basis. Children can attend different services on different days, or sign up for the full package throughout the session and, if last minute changes are necessary, we will do our best to accommodate requests. Childcare Vouchers can be used to offset the cost of e-Plus.
With painting, baking, reading and visits to local attractions during the holidays and much, much more, there is always something on offer in both term time and holiday periods. Our younger children, from Nursery to Primary 3, are based at New Ravelston, which offers unrivalled opportunities to play indoors or outdoors, irrespective of the weather. At the Solway Centre at Queensferry Road, where Primary 4-7 are based, older children can enjoy quiet time doing homework, hang out with friends in the cafe eating healthy snacks or they can go outside to play football, basketball or just have fun with friends.
After School Club is awesome - it's got everything you could possibly wish for!
e-Plus is run by our e-Plus Manager, Claire Gray, who is a very experienced, highly qualified and widely respected child care specialist. Her team of both male and female staff are chosen because they love working with children. Many have specialist qualifications in Early Childhood Studies, Youth Work and/or Playwork.
If your child joins us for the After School Club, healthy snacks are included.
