Extended Day

Early Club – 7.30am to 8.40am
If parents require an early start to their day, children from Kindergarten through to Prep II can take advantage of our Early Club.

Based in Kindergarten, Early Club provides fully flexible care just when you need it. There is no need to pre-book and parents can leave safe in the knowledge that their youngest are in the care of experienced staff who will escort them to class together with any messages, ready to start the day. Children who travel by School Bus and arrive early are of course, also welcome.

A small fee applies dependent on time of arrival: £6.00 for children attending from 7.30am, £2.50 payable for arrivals between 8am and 8.20am, £1.50 after that.

  • Supervised care for children in EYFS and Preps I & II
  • Available from as early as 7.30am

Late Club – until 6pm
If unable to be collected straight from school, Bridgewater provides all Prep children with an after-school facility in the large Dining Hall, where they are looked after by trained staff until 6pm.

Pupils have the opportunity to interact with different classes while engaging in an array of age-related activities such as: home corner, collage table, puzzles, building materials and an audio / visual suite. There is also a quiet area for junior children to complete homework, should they wish to do so.

Charges are based on pick-up times: £5 for use of Late Club up to 5pm, or £8 if collected up to 6pm. Costs include the provision of a nutritionally balanced snack.
