Wrap Around Care

HA4K wraparound care at The Good Shepherd – starting September 2024

From the start of the 2024-25 school year, HA4K (who currently provide holidays clubs at school) are taking over the running of our wraparound care. They have 60 places for children from nursery up to year 6. The wraparound club will be Ofsted registered and offer the option of paying with tax free childcare vouchers.

Bookings: Their online booking system is being developed right now and will be very similar to the current system used for HA4K. They plan to have bookings open before the summer holidays, but are taking a register of interest now to record our families’ requirements so they can anticipate numbers and staff accordingly.

Register your interest: Before the booking system goes live, email info@ha4k.co.uk with your child’s name, what year group they will be in in September and an idea of what childcare you will need.

HA4K want to offer flexibility on booking so you will be able to book for the whole half-term, or just pick and choose ad-hoc days to suit your needs and, subject to availability, book at the last minute!

Costs and timings: Breakfast club will open at 7.30am with a fee of £7.50. Children will be given breakfast, activities and a wake and shake before school starts.

After school club will be 3.30pm until 6pm with a cost of £12.50. From 3.30pm until 4.15pm will be snacks and free play. From then until 5.30pm, there will be activities, sports, games, crafts, dance and mindfulness, then 5.30pm until 6pm will be calming down activities.

We appreciate that having your childcare sorted is important but want to reassure you that with double the capacity that there was previously (60 places) we are confident everyone will get a space.
