Providing your child with outstanding care in a warm home from home setting before and after the school day. The Orchard provides a safe, relaxed and fun environment. We can guarantee stimulating activities to meet the needs of all children – giving them home comforts and healthy meal choices.

Breakfast Club

Breakfast Club is an opportunity for children to set themselves up for a successful day at school with a good hearty breakfast and stimulating activities. Children are offered a variety of breakfast choices and will then go out for a morning play. The last 5 minutes of breakfast club is dedicated to quiet reading where children will be supported in reading where necessary. This is a time for us to make sure that all children are ready to enter their classes calmly and ready to learn. For children in Foundation and Key Stage 1, our staff will accompany them to their classrooms for the beginning of the school day ensuring that they are organised and happy.
