Our ‘Wrap Around Care’ at Houldsworth Valley School

For parents and carers who need childcare before and/or after school, ‘Wrap Around Care’ is a popular choice.

At Houldsworth Valley we offer a fun and safe environment where qualified and experienced staff organise a range of free choice and adult-led activities and games from the wide selection of activities and resources available. These could include:

  • Outside activities (weather permitting)
  • Arts and crafts
  • Lego
  • Construction toys
  • Books
  • Dressing up
  • Board games
  • Table football

Breakfast Club

Daily sessions run from 7.45am to 8.50am. The children are then taken to their classes (Early Years and Key Stage 1 pupils) or escorted to the playground to line up with their class (Key Stage 2).

The cost of a Breakfast Club session is £3.00 which includes breakfast.

Breakfast Menu

Choose from:

  • Cereals (not sugar coated)
  • Toast and spreads
  • Fresh fruit
  • Fruit juice
  • Milk
  • Squash

After School Club

Daily sessions run from 3.15pm to 5pm or 6pm. The cost is £6.00 per session until 5pm and £8.50 for a session until 6pm. The session starts with a snack which may include:

  • Afternoon Snack Menu
  • Sandwiches
  • Bagels
  • Crackers and cheese
  • Yogurts
  • Fresh fruit
  • Choice of drinks

Weekly treats may include pancakes or an ice-cream in the summer months.

Children can then enjoy outdoor play (weather permitting,) and later, they come in to choose from a range of indoor activities (see above.) Staff are also happy to offer support to children who have homework that they want to complete.

For children staying until 6pm, we stop for a cup of tea / hot chocolate and a biscuit at approximately 5.30pm.

We promote independence by asking the children to help each other and clear away. We meet individual dietary requirements wherever possible. We recognise the importance of healthy nutrition for children, delivered in a calm, friendly setting.


Childcare vouchers are accepted: Kiddivouchers and Edenred.
