We offer 4 sessions per week, term-time only, including Tuesday morning,extended Monday and Friday sessions, and an exclusive extended ‘Pre-School’ session on Thursdays, aimed at those children attending school the following September. We are operating a waiting list for our Monday and Friday sessions as they are full currently.
